2008 Lamoreaux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2008 Lamoreaux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep dark red in color, with aromas that at first are delicate floral, pencil lead, and anise. As the nose develops, aromas of cola and dark chocolate with hints of black pepper are revealed. This complex wine has a beautifully balanced palate with rich, silky tannins and never-ending flavors of cigar box, dark chocolate, vanilla, and smoky dark coffee.



HARVEST & WINEMAKING

These grapes are grown in what Sequoia Grove casually refers to as the Oak Knoll bench. The vineyard is tucked into the western hills on one of the first estates in Napa Valley, and between its ancient oak trees and grazing cattle grow these beautifully cared-for vines.The grapes were hand harvested on October 17 at 27.3 Brix, then cluster sorted before a two-day cold soak and a small-batch fermentation using French yeast. The juice was gently pumped over 2-3 times per day during the primary fermentation. In barrel, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and aged 22 months before being racked twice and bottled August 2010. The wine rested in our underground cellar until its release March 2012.

Notes:
Sleek, supple and deceptively complex, with pure dark berry, touches of loamy earth and dried herb. Lifts off on the finish, showing a dash of creamy oak. Drink now through 2023. 418 cases made.

Notes:
If youre looking for sheer flash in Napa Valley Cabernet, try this one. Itâ??s expensive, but worth the price. It dazzles for soft lusciousness, and the depth and complexity of blackberries, black currants, cassis and chocolat
