Deeply complex and layered wine that unfurls with enticing notes of coffee, tobacco, clove cranberry and dried cherry, with just a touch of mint. The abundant palate is finessed by luxurious, fine-grained tannins that persist through the mocha-dusted finish.

Tasting Notes - A deeply complex and layered wine that unfurls with enticing notes of coffee, tobacco, clove cranberry and dried cherry, with just a touch of mint. The abundant palate is finessed by luxurious, fine-grained tannins that persist through the mocha-dusted finish. Winemaker Jeff Gaffner vinifies each grape lot separately to retain individual block and varietal characters. Once in the cellar, the grapes are de-stemmed and cold soaked for 2-3 days in small fermenters, and then inoculated with a low rate of cultured yeast. Periodic punch downs and pump overs encourage softer extraction at lower alcohol levels. After pressing, the wines are sent to barrel to finish primary and secondary fermentation. Once finished, they are racked off the lees and returned to the same barrels for a total of 24 months aging.

Complex and well-balanced, from the opening cedar, herb and tobacco scents to the trim, taut currant, mineral and dried berry flavors. Full-bodied, ending with chewy tannins. Best from 2011 through 2017. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Hestan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Stephanie 750ml
