Tasting Notes

2016 – Rich vibrant purple and red hues present in this wine. Cassis, black cherry and ripe black plumb combine with black pepper, and mocha with a hint of black olive. Flavors of juicy blackberry and cassis are encompassed with black licorice and a slightly toasted oak. This is a structured Cabernet with length, flavor and style. Enjoy!

2017- Opulent red hues present in this wine. Aromas of blackberry, black currant, and cassis combine with dark cocoa and toasted oak. On the palate, flavors of plum, raspberry, and blackberry compote mingle with attractive elements of mocha and toasted barrel maturation. A structured yet elegant cabernet sauvignon.

2018 – Opulent purple and red hues present this wine. Cassis, black plum and dark raspberry aromas combine with anise and subtle vanilla, evidence of the toasted oak maturation. Juicy blackberry and black currant flavors mingle with dark cocoa, black licorice, espresso and subtle toasted oak.  This textured and elegantly structured cabernet sauvignon exhibits a velvety tannin finish.

Winemaking

The fruit was hand-harvested in the cool morning hours and brought to the winery in half-ton bins. At the winery, the clusters were sorted using a double sorting system. First, the clusters were sorted by hand. Then, individual berries were sorted to ensure that only ideal grapes were chosen. These berries were delivered to a fermenter for a period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged along with gentle cap maceration to achieve the desired color and structure before an extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing. The wine was transferred directly to barrel.
