WINEMAKING

The 2014 vintage was ideal for producing exceptional, elegant wines. From bud break through berry set, the season progressed slowly to create fruit that was packed with brilliant, concentrated flavors. We picked the grapes for this wine at night when the temperature was cool then slowly warmed the juice to fermentation temperatures. One hundred percent of this Cabernet Sauvignon underwent secondary malolactic fermentation before we aged it in a combination of French and American oak.

TASTING NOTES

Take in tantalizing aromas of black cherries and blackberries along with hints of violet and freshly-cracked peppercorn before plunging into flavors of dense black fruit compote and black currant, beautifully highlighted with a hint of earth and spice. This medium-bodied wine is jammy and juicy with plush, velvety tannins.
