Winemaker’s Notes

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from grapes grown by Zayante Vineyards (located in Felton, CA) on head-trained, dry-farmed vines. The fruit was hand harvested and gently destemmed without crushing into open top fermenters. Following a 24 hour cold soak multiple yeast were added to the grapes to start fermentation and enhance complexity and structure.  The skins were punched down into the must by hand one to three times per day. Fermentation took place over 9 days. After the grape sugars were fully fermented, the wine was pressed from the skins yielding two 59 gallon barrels including one new French Oak barrel. The wine was aged for 20 months then the three barrels were blended before bottling with 12% Merlot to enhance the body and flavors of the finished wine
