Marshal's Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage The 2002 vintage started with a cool spring leading to above average temperatures in July and August. The midsummer heat advanced ripening into the beginning of September when temperatures moderated and became ideal harvest weather. Moderate day temperatures and cool nights allowed ample “hang time” for the flavors to develop. Vineyards The 2002 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Champoux Vineyard, Stillwater Creek Vineyard, Katherine-Leone Vineyard, Alder Ridge Vineyard, Alder Creek Vineyard, Sagemoor Farms, Ahler Vineyard, Martinez Vineyard and Conner-Lee Vineyard. All of these vineyards are located in the Columbia Valley region of Washington. Harvest dates varied from September 24 through October 19 of 2002. All the fruit is hand harvested into small bins in the early morning hours and processed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation & Aging The fruit was destemmed and crushed into small fermentors where the fruit was either punched down by hand three times a day or pumped over twice daily. Primary fermentation lasted, on average, seven days. At this time the skins were gently pressed off and fermentation was completed in barrel. Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel adding a viscous mouthfeel and complexity to the wine. While aging in oak barrels the wines were racked every three months to naturally clarify the wine. Appellation: Columbia Valley Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon – 87% Malbec – 9% Merlot – 4% Harvest Brix: 24.5 Final pH: 3.70 Total Acid: 0.57 g/100ml Alcohol: 14.5 % by volume
