At nearly fifty acres planted, we farm more Cabernet Sauvignon than any other grape. In 2017 we harvested a little earlier than normal (1-2 weeks) due to September heat, but found the grapes had higher natural tannin and deeper color than we have seen in years. Each block is hand-harvested and most undergo 20-30 day fermentations to build color, phenolics and flavor. We aged the wine nearly 28 months in 43% new French Oak barrels, allowing the tannins to soften and the fruit flavors to marry. This is a classic vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon: dark chocolate and cherry flavors, powdery tannins and juicy acidity.
