Vineyard Notes

The 2012 growing season was ideal in every way. Gentle winter rains left just enough ground water for the vines to establish a moderate canopy that allowed just the right amount of sunlight to reach each cluster. Moderate daytime temperatures and cool nights from spring to late summer resulted in slow maturation, allowing the fruit to develop superb complexity while retaining bright acidity.

Production Notes

Once harvested, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sorted using an optical sorter that inspects individual berries to ensure uniform, perfect ripeness. The juice then undergoes three to five days of a cold soak followed by eight to 10 days of fermentation using native yeasts. The wine then rested on the skins for a week longer to develop additional complexity before pressing and aging for 16 months in 40% new French oak barrels.
