Product description

This is our first vintage working with Cabernet Pfeffer. We know that this varietal tends to have aggressive tannins, so we decided to ferment it using carbonic maceration. It was fermented in concrete, then pressed to neutral French oak barrels to allow the wine to breath. The wine aged for 14 months. Cabernet Pfeffer is thought to be a child of Cabernet Sauvignon and Trousseau Noir. Some people believe it is Gros Verdot, but no one is certain and it is probably not true. Dr. Pfeffer was a horticulturist in San Jose who identified the variety and named it! (Pfeffer is also the name for pepper in German) Sogi is a nickname for the area where the vineyard is located in relation to our winery. Broc Cellars is located on 5thand Gilman Street in the Gilman district of Berkeley. The vineyard is located South of Gilman – hence SOGI ! The image is a Sugi – which is a cedar ball in Japan. We loved the idea of Sogi and Sugi!
