Winemaking Notes: Grapes from sites throughout the North Coast were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed into open-top stainless steel fermenters, at warm temperatures, to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine then was racked to a combination of French and American oak for aging of which 20% was new. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling.
Tasting Notes: This North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep ruby color with aromas of blackberry, red and black currants. On the palate, flavors of blackberries and ripe plum, with hints of roasted coffee, fill the mid-palate. Mocha and black pepper frame the finish and provide for a full-bodied and rich wine experience.
