'Flying Cloud is another label owned and produced by Stephen Ross. Other Flying Cloud varietals produced are Pinot Gris and Syrah Rose. Stylistically, the wines have aromas that express varietal character as well as a sense of the place where the grapes were grown.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was made using the classic Bordeaux methods of production: fermentation in small stainless steel tanks, daily pump-overs, three weeks of skin contact, lightly pressed through a small basket press, aged in neutral French oak barrels and bottled without fining or filtration. The wine is purple-black in color; the aromas display a solid core of blackberry fruit, sage, minerals and flint. There are ripe lush tannins and black cherry flavors on the mid-palate, finishing with soft textures and lingering
ripe-berry flavors. This is a rich and elegant, fruit forward style of Cabernet Sauvignon with a small amount of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah to add spice and fruit.'
