Joel Gott "815" Cabernet Sauvignon California 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Across California, the 2014 growing season was warm throughout with low rainfall in the winter and spring followed by moderate summer temperatures, causing fruit to mature faster and be picked earlier. The shorter than normal growing season meant that fruit developed intense fruit flavors and well-structured tannins. Each appellation we source fruit from in California is chosen for what it gives to the wine. Fruit from Lodi is characterized by good flavor and a soft texture, while Lake County fruit has minerality and richness. Fruit from Napa offers complexity to the wine, and Central Coast fruit from Paso Robles and Monterey adds good color and tannin thanks to a longer period of maturation. New to the blend, fruit from the Happy Canyon appellation within Santa Ynez experiences cool, foggy mornings followed by warm afternoons resulting in fruit that is rich and concentrated. Sonoma fruit adds a touch of spice. Sourcing from these varied regions across California helped to create an elegant, balanced wine.
