Our 2018 Limited Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant and full-bodied wine that is quintessentially Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas are blackberry and cassis with hints of cinnamon. The flavors are dark, ripe, jammy fruit with savory notes. The tannins are velvety, and the wine is beautifully balanced a delight for Napa Cabernet lovers to enjoy.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the primary varietal used in this vintage. Our grapes are handpicked during the early morning hours at optimal ripeness. Upon arrival at the winery, we hand sort the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit before it is destemmed into small fermentation tanks. After a few days of cold soaking, the must is gently warmed , and yeast was added to initiate fermentation. We 'pump-over' many times during the 14-21 day fermentation, allowing for maximum extraction of fruit flavor, color and tannin from the skins. We than allowed the free run wine to gravity flow from the skins directly to barrel. The skins were gently pressed, the wine going to barrels to mature separately. The wines were allowed to mature for 18 months in barrel before being blended and prepared for bottling.
