95 - Tasting

This wine was fermented in stainless steel with two pumpovers per day and then saw extended maceration on the skins post primary fermentation; aged in (80% new) French oak for 22 months, it displays a united front of powdery tannins, coffee bean, plum skin, and soil. These notes find a haven in the broad texture, unmasking its denseness with a flow of blackberry and black cherry on the finish.

WINEMAKING

Our Cabernet was fermented in tank and kept in contact with the skins for 25-28 days, after which the skins were pressed off in a basket press and the hard press kept separate. After 100% malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine was aged in French barrels (72% new) for 13 months before bottling.
