2012 Cabernet Sauvignon "Colonel's Vineyard"

With the enviable position at the top of the property, The Colonel’s Vineyard is a small, 1 ¼ acre block planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. This pristine block has a gently sloping south-west exposure for even ripening of the fruit.

As always, we peel off just 5 barrels of the wine from this beautiful vineyard of Clone 337 Cabernet. We barrel ferment these grapes. Until recently, this was a highly unusual process for red wine fermentation which I learned in Bordeaux; now it is widely used for many of California’s most expensive Cabernets.
