2014
Monterey

Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

The grapes for our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon were selectively harvested during the early days of November. The wine underwent a 3 day cold soak followed by a 14 day fermentation after which it was left on skins for an additional 5 days. The wine was then aged with a combination of stainless steel and French oak, 10% new.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Aromas of plum skin and wild brambles.

Palate: 

Delicious flavors of blackberry and blackcurrant with notes of allspice and black pepper envelope the palate and lead to a smooth, long finish. 

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2014 vintage Monterey was one of the earliest harvests on record. The growing season was long and without late season rains, prime fruit maturity was seen. Temperate weather throughout the region led to another incredible harvest with slightly lower than average acidy and well-balanced wines.
