B Cellars Blend 25 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2008
Carefully de-stemmed, the whole berries are moved to tank for a three to five day cold soak prior to the onset of fermentation. Total fermentation time averages 14 to 24 days. Each vineyard lot is individually vinified from fermentation to barrel and allowed to mature singly. The process culminates in blending sessions which take countless hours of intense concentration and a keen interest in allowing each component not only to express its unique characteristics, but to harmonize and complement the wine as a whole. The barrel program is 75% new tight grain French oak and once used French oak barriques for a total of 22 months.
