Details

VINEYARD

Grapes for our 2014 Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested and blended from our three Napa Valley vineyards located within the Spring Mountain, Mt. Veeder and Yountville appellations.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The drought that has impacted much of California from 2012 continued to keep rainfall levels below 50% of average and maintained growing season heat summation above average for the harvest. The warm and dry conditions promotes excellent quality and when combined with above average yields the potential of the 2014 vintage is outstanding across all varieties.

VINIFICATION

Once harvested, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sorted using an optical sorter that inspects individual berries to ensure uniform, perfect ripeness. The must then underwent five days of cold maceration followed by seven days of fermentation. The wine then rested on the skins for up to one month to develop additional complexity before being pressed and aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, 30 percent of which was new.
