Winemaking Notes

We handpicked all our Cabernet Sauvignon early in the morning while temperatures were chilly. The whole clusters were delivered to the winery in small bins. The fruit was gently destemmed from the rachis (stems) then moved to stainless steel tanks and open top tanks for fermentation. After three days of cold soaking, fermentation was initiated with a hand-selected yeast that complemented our fruit and the fermenting juice was pumped over the fermenting skins 2-3 times daily for color and tannin extraction. When primary fermentation completed, the new wine was pressed from its skins and pumped to a fresh tank. Once settled in tank, the new wine was racked off its sediment to barrels and secondary fermentation began. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel which helped soften the wine. Aged on light sur lie, in 100% French oak, for 24 months, the resulting wine was racked from barrels to tanks for the final blend assemblage then held until bottled.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of dried cherries, currants, tobacco leaf and dried herbs. Full bodied flavors of cranberries, cherries, and vanilla with touches of smoke and toast. The body is elegant with a sleek, supple finish. Our 2015 Bob's is beautiful right now, but will also age for 10 -15 years for a softer style.
