Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Stags Leap District
Aging: 18 months in 50%new French Oak/50% used French Oak
Fermentation: Each variety was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks with variable skin contact time.
Alcohol %: 14.00%
Tasting Notes: This plush wine coats the palate, exuding blackberry and black cherry flavors with hints of smoke. The velvety tannins are seamlessly integrated, making it suitable for a meal or simply by itself.
Vineyard Notes: Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. With 28 distinctive vineyard blocks showing an array of different aspects, soil types, clones and rootstocks, our vineyard provides a diversity of flavors that are artfully blended to capture the holistic representation of our estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
Production Notes: Another rainy spring and cool temperatures led to a late harvest and some challenges in the vineyard and cellar. This is the kind of vintage that required much attention to our Estate Vineyards to optimize the quality of our wines. In the end we were please with the balance and the suppleness of these wines.
