In 2012, they primarily selected their grapes from four esteemed Sonoma County vineyards: Barrelli Creek Ranch, Timber Crest, Scherrer and Monte Rosso. Each of these sites added a unique layer of complexity to the final wine. The 2012 vintage was warmer than the previous few years, resulting in fully ripe, dark fruit flavors in our Cabernet.
Wine maker notes
A majority of the fruit is sourced from our Alexander Valley vineyard, which is a warmer climate growing area that produces some of the world’s most beautiful expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep the fruit as cool as possible before fermentation. Grapes were destemmed but not crushed, leaving greater than 90% whole berries for fermentation. The Cabernet Sauvignon juice was fermented in stainless steel upright fermenters with a temperature range between 88F - 90F, receiving extended skin contact for 14 to 21 days for maximum extraction of color and flavor. To ensure the development of desired flavor and aroma characteristics, the juice was inoculated with the yeast strain and 100% of the wine completed malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 16 months in new and used French, American and Hungarian oak barrels with a mixture of heavy, medium and medium-plus toasting levels to add additional flavor and complexity prior to bottling.
