User Reviews for Clayhouse Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes:

"The grapes for our Vineyard Cabernet come from our estate Red Cedar Vineyard just outside Paso Robles. Red Cedar’s calcareous soils have loam, silty clay loam, and sandy loam components, and the Cabernet blocks are situated on benchlands overlooking the Estrella River. Yields in 2009 were larger than 2008, and heavy rains in October presented challenges for some growers. Most of our later ripening varieties (like Cabernet) at Red Cedar Vineyard were harvested prior to the rains. These grapes were handpicked, sorted, crushed and pressed, and after fermenting, the new wine aged for 12 months in a combination of European, French and American oak. The wine was blended prior to bottling with 20% Petit Verdot to add even more up-front fruit character. The Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of bing cherries with some dark olive notes, cracked black pepper, and just a hint of violet and oak. In the mouth, flavors are mainly of juicy dried cherries and some herbal tones. The wine has ample acidity with soft tannins and is food friendly, approachable, and shows good varietal expression." -Winery
