87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. From our certified-sustainable estate Red Cedar Vineyard. Deep purple/dark red color. Aromas of dark Bing cherry, black currant, and hints of cedar and sweet vanilla . The wine is rich, full bodied and has sweet black cherry and ripe plum fruit flavors with licorice undertones. This Cabernet has chewy but rounded and smooth tannins and finishes with warm toasty notes. 100% of the fruit was destemmed, then moved directly to stainless steel fermenting tanks without crushing. The must was cold soaked for 3 days at 50F before inoculation with yeast. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The new wine was pressed at dryness, after 17 days maceration and fermentation. It was racked off its gross lees after 3 days settling, then innoculated for malolactic fermentation. It aged 10 months in a combination of French and American oak.
