Aging Notes: 100% French oak, 65% new and 35% 2nd and 3rd-vintage barrels

Winemaking Notes: The grapes are gently crushed and dropped into 1.5 ton bins for a 24-hour cold soak. The wine is then inoculated with a variety of yeast and hand punched until fermentation slows. The tanks are pressed directly to barrels, where the wine finishes both primary and secondary fermentation. The individual lots of wine that comprise the Cabernet Sauvignon are kept separate for 22 months before they are blended.

Tasting Notes: Notes of deep red fruit, including raspberry, boysenberry and currant on the nose, followed by leather, black pepper and cassis. The palate brings mouth-watering tannins with lingering red fruit, especially red cherry, flavors of rich meats on the midpalate, with a balanced, smooth finish.

    The delicious 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off medium-bodied dark fruit flavors and suggestions of chocolate and espresso bean. Consume over the next several years.
