2012 Cabernet Sauvignon- One Hundred Percent


The Vineyard:


Sourced from both our estate-grown vineyards as well as neighboring Cabernet vineyards, this wine is quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Careful pruning and canopy management in the vineyard is essential to maintaining the balance of fruit, tannins, and acidity in the finished wine. 2012 was one of the best vintages ever seen in Napa Valley and Mother Nature gave us a big assist on this wine!

The Winemaking:

After hand-sorting the grapes both in the vineyard and at the crush pad, the grapes were crushed and fermented slowly in small open-top stainless steel tanks. Punch downs were performed by hand three times a day to gently extract all of the aromas and flavors from the grapes. After fermentation was complete, the wine was allowed to age in both new and used French oak barrels to provide structure and texture to the finished product. This Cab was bottled unfined to ensure maximum flavor development.
