2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is bright, vibrant and full of character. Crushed rocks, lavender, blood orange, inky dark fruit and cinnamon all take shape in a wine that balances richness and vibrancy, essentially what makes Coombsville so special. This is such a striking and expressive Cabernet.

20 Months in New French Oak
Arriving in small picking lugs from the vineyards, the clusters were hand sorted, de-stemmed and hand sorted again, berry-by-berry. A two-day cold soak was followed by primary fermentation in small, open-top stainless steel tanks. Following an extended maceration, the fruit was gently pressed and the wine moved to barrel for secondary fermentation. The wine was aged for 19 months in rare 100% New French Artisan Oak barrels with minimal racking. Multiple, blending trials, determined the final blend, which was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
