2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
20 months in new French Oak barrels
The grapes for our red wines arrive in small picking lugs from the vineyards. The clusters are hand sorted, de-stemmed, and hand sorted again, berry-by-berry. After a two-day cold soak, primary fermentation begins in small, open-top stainless steel tanks, followed by extended maceration. The fruit is then gently pressed, and the wine is moved to barrels for secondary fermentation. Our reds are then aged up to 24 months in 100% new French artisan oak barrels with minimal racking. Multiple blending trials determine the final blend. Our reds are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
