WINEMAKING
Cabernet Sauvignon from our 24 year old estate vines was gently destemmed for a whole berry
fermentation, with twice daily pumpovers. We later blended with a small portion of Cabernet Franc
and Syrah from our Sagebrush Vineyard, and aged in a mixture of new and older French oak barrels.
Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Varietal: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah
Fermentation: Inoculated in Stainless steel
Maturation: 20 months in French oak, 15% new
