“The Alexander Valley is hot by day, but cooled by coastal breezes at night. We select our grapes from the coveted hillside vineyards in the Alexander Valley, where a unique combination of soil and climate work together to create unparalleled complexity and flavor. This cabernet sauvignon opens with aromas of cassis and crushed berries. On the palate, flavors of blackberry, raspberry, cedar and tobacco are framed by firm, velvety tannins and a long, elegant finish.
The grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon were gently destemmed, but not crushed, leaving a significant portion of whole berries for fermentation. A full eight to ten days of contact between the grapes and the skins allowed us to extract intense color and flavor before fermentation. After primary fermentation, the wine completed malolactic fermentation to soften the acid structure and add complexity.”
