2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage   |  2014 2013 2012

Dark red in color, on the nose the wine smells of blackberry, black cherry, and clove, with background notes of coffee and vanilla. On the palate, the wine bursts with fresh fruit, cherries, and blackberries. A seamless arc of flavor flows into a slightly smoky finish.

Description


HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The grapes used to produce this wine are from the best appellations in Napa Valley from the best growers. A list of our growers include: Sequoia Grove estate vineyard, Tonella estate vineyard, Stagecoach, Morisoli, Lamoreaux, Henry Brothers, Healy vineyard, Beckstoffer George III, and Christian.

Each site was harvested at its ideal brix, ranging between 23 and 27, and picked over the course of six weeks, from September 19 – October 31. The fruit was hand sorted before undergoing a 1-2 day cold soak. The lots were individually fermented in small batches, with gentle pumpovers 2-3 times per day. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel, where it was aged for 20 months before being racked and bottled in August 2014.
