Winemaker Notes - Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 24 months in French oak barrels, begins with ever-changing aromas, characteristic of mountain fruit. Ripe plum and lush vanilla overtones back aromatics thick with exotic spice and black currant fruit. This opulent palate is reminiscent of classic Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon. This bright and robust wine with superb balance and structure is full of lush plum and cherry flavors, layered with vanilla oak that extend into an elegant finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

Our goal is to allow the wine to develop its own depth and distinctive characteristics. Destemmed, whole berries are “cold soaked” for four days in open top fermenters, fermented to dry and left for 7 days of heated maceration. Twelve months of aging in French oak barrels develops a rounder, creamier texture in the wine. Soft vanilla overtones back aromatics thick with ripe plum and black currant fruit. This bright and robust wine with superb balance and structure is full of lush plum and cherry flavors, layered with soft, elegant fruit, rich texture and a mellow tannic backbone.
