WINEMAKER NOTESThis 2014 wine was made from hand-selected grapes in one small vineyard block. It is known as Block 5, but the Cabernet Sauvignon is clone 30, which consistently makes our top Cabernet from this vineyard year-to-year. After hand harvesting and processing, the fermentation is kept at 82 F, keeping it warm and ideal for extraction of aromas and flavors. The wine then goes down to 50% new French oak barrels and 50% neutral French oak barrels for 26 months for aging and refining. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
