Manifesto Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

As alluded to above, our two sites act as a kind of yen and yang to one another: abundant flavor in one and massive but defined structure in the other. In the nose, the 2008 Cabernet jumps out with bold, heady aromas of right-out-the-bramble blackberry, wild strawberry. A wild yeast fermentation keeps the aromas pretty wild themselves, and the slightest kiss of new oak (6 barrels out of 140) provides a little vanilla as well. The aromas carry over into the mouth, where they are complemented by currants, blackberry, cigar-box tobacco, and a touch of minerality we think of as 'pencil lead'. All this is framed by a structure of harmonious acid and fine, seamless-but-pronounced tannin that we are very proud of—the wine reads as something much fancier than its presentation.
