2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2012 Cab is very similar to the 2011 but from a warmer vintage.  Ripe and rocking in every way.  Our cabs have become famous for being full-bodied, long, and fine.  There is not another one like it in the world.  No one would go to the trouble of getting grapes from ten vineyards for the blend, working hard to get the oldest, best blocks in the state.

 

The Leonetti Loess and Champoux fruit normally goes into our Reserve.  The Weinbau cab franc is old and hard to come by.  Gamache Vineyard, Bacchus Vineyard, Pepper Bridge and Seven Hills, all historic and extremely well-managed. Windrow is, of course, the oldest cab planting in the entire Seven Hills/ Rocks area.

 
We make the wine in a really old-fashioned manner.  Hand-picked grapes, simple crush, cold-soak for 3 days, ferment for another 18 at cool temperatures, hand-punch 3 times a day, hand-press on a wooden basket press, gravity feed to cellar (cool and open to the ground), three years aging including the final year blended in a 2000 gallon French Oak tank.  Bottled in-house, waxed and labeled by hand.
 We love watching people taste this.
