After a three-day cold soak, the grapes were crushed and fermented at relatively warm temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After pressing, each lot was blended synergistically for flavor impact with other lots. In some cases, they were either egg white or gelatin fined to achieve ideal color and tannin concentration. By Springtime of 2013, all lots were racked to barrels for 10 months, primarily in American oak. Each lot was removed from barrels and in some cases lightly fined with egg whites. Small portions of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Ruby Cabernet, Malbec and Syrah were added for balance, aromatics and flavor prior to the final, master blend.

Winemaker’s Notes:
Our 2012 Sonoma County Cabernet is dark ruby in color with enchanting aromatics that range from bergamot tea, dark to black cherry, cranberry and cassis. The flavors are bold and exciting including black cherry on first attack followed by layers of dark cherry cranberry. The finish is lengthy with cola berry and coconut/vanilla finish due to oak barrel aging. This medium-bodied wine closes with smooth tannins and nice acidity to rein in the fruit. Very drinkable now! - Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker
