2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
We adhere to strictest quality standards. From the vineyard, the clusters are all hand-sorted, 100% de-stemming, the berries are again hand sorted, berry by berry. After three to five days of cold pre-fermentation in small open-top fermenters, we start fermentation by adding yeast. Four to five weeks later; the fruit is gently pressed and moved to barrel where it finishes the remaining secondary fermentations. The wine continues to the carefully age in new French oak barrels from artesian French Coopers. To assure proper aging we age our wines for about eighteen to twenty months in a combination of rare barrels from Ana Selection and Darnajou. After many blending trials, the wine is bottled, unfine and unfiltered.
Winemaker Kian Tavakoli has clearly displayed his talents and his belief in quality without compromise approach. Our goal at PATEL is and always will be, to produce beautiful wines of outstanding quality, with distinction and elegance. Our goal is to make wines that are both “powerful and elegant” and pair well with a broad range of foods. Our Cabernet Sauvignon has the style and quality that are with par wines from the great ‘Left Bank’ region of Bordeaux, France.
