Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA).

Vintage Notes:

After frost in April led to a reduced yield, a mild summer and a warm, dry August and September resulted in wines with a great depth of flavor and structure for aging.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon is left  to mature to its peak before being hand harvested and hand sorted. It undergoes a cold maceration for 5 days before fermentation.  Extended skin contact rounds out the palate and integrates the rich tannins to seamless perfection.  Finally, it ages in French oak barrels for 9 months prior to bottling.
