2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Sept. 24 - 30, 2016
26.8 at Harvest
New and Used French and American Oak
First Bottling August 2017
The fruit for our 2016 Cabernet was harvested between Sept. 24th and September 30th with an average Brix of 26.8. After 7-9 days of fermentation on the skins, the resulting wine was pressed and finished fermentation in Stainless Steel tanks. The wine was then aged on new and used French and American Oak for 4-6 months.
Dark garnet in color with a bouquet that is full of dark berry fruit, such as Blueberry, Blackberry and Black Cherry. Oak aging has contributed just a hint of smoke to the nose. The round, creamy wine delivers an abundance of the fruit flavors promised by the olfactory. The fruit and oak are well integrated and the complexity of the wine plays on the tongue long after the wine has been ingested.
Our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 75% Cabernet, 12% Tannat and 11% Petit Verdot.
