Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 16%, Cabernet Franc 9% This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has rich fruit. Softness is what you feel on the palate. Forward fruit is unveiled on the palate such as ripe cherry, currant, plum, blueberry, strawberry, wild berries. There are layers of caramel, smoke, and toast integrated with the fruit. It is complex, rich, and has deep well balanced fruit flavors. It has a long finish. Drink now through 2012. Cabernet Sauvignon is produced in a unique style, 1/3 whole cluster berry fermented in small open top fermenters to facilitate maximum flavor and color extraction. The cap is punched down several times a day over a period of 7 to 10 days. When fermented dry, it is pressed off and racked into French Oak barrels. The Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in 100% French Oak for twenty-three (23) months. The wine is further aged for an additional 12 months in the bottle. Aging in the bottle allows the wine to rest and round out its natural fruit flavor and aromatic attributes.
