The individual lots for this wine were fermented separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel with three pump-overs daily. After creating the final blend, we aged the wine for 12 months in 60 gallon toasted French and American oak barrels.
Dark ruby in color, the Cabernet Sauvignon opens to spicy notes of raspberry and black cherry with hints of cedar and toasty oak rounding out the nose. Flavors of briar, blackberries, raspberries, hints of roasted coffee and an earthy, savory spiciness coat the palate, and lead to a long, elegant finish. These wonderful flavors and the wine's smooth, mouth-filling tannins make this wine a perfect accompaniment to barbecued steaks and lamb chops, as well as richer pasta dishes and ripe cheeses.
