2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes were handpicked and the gently crushed and put in open top fermenters, where they received three days of cold soak. Pasteur Red yeast was used and fermentation was held at 80 degrees F, and continued until dryness after 15 days. The tanks were drained and pomace transferred by hand to the press where it received a gentle pressing. The wine was settled in a tank for 24 hours, then racked into cooperage for aging. After 16 months in 100% French oak, the wine was racked into a tank, gently fined with organic egg whites, and loosely filtered before bottling. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
