100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Record setting rain and cooler temperatures lengthened dormancy,
with first signs of bud break mid-March. Hotter than average days in June and July brought harvest mid-August with lower than average yields across all varieties.
Classic, labor-intensive, small-lot winemaking techniques implemented. Four day cold-soak, hand punch downs for two weeks in open-top fermenters. Aged in 50% new French oak for 16 months.
Deep notes of chocolate-covered cherry, dense cassis, and cacao nib. Blueberry throughout, with allspice, green peppercorn, and supple integrated tannins
