Mutt Lynch Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley Canis Major Perotti Vineyard 2006
Brenda’s Winemaking. In the winery, Brenda ferments her Cabernet Sauvignon in a similar manner to her Zinfandel and Syrah. She is not looking for maximum power and extraction from the grape skins. Rather, she is focused on a more gentle extraction that emphasizes purity of fruit. Fermentation was done in open top tanks with 3 times daily punch-downs and one “French rack” to maximize extraction and yeast production. The wine was aged in 100% French oak, with 50% new Bel Air, Vicard and Vernou cooperage.
We are a dog friendly winery, with doggone good wines!
Food Pairings for Mutt Lynch Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley Canis Major Perotti Vineyard
Tight aromas of new French oak and hints of red and black fruits signal the wine’s youth. Bright fruit flavors combine with caramel and toasty oak in a structured mid palette that explodes into a chewy, dense finish with sweet, ripe tannins. Decant for near term consumption; best in 4-5 years.
196 cases produced.
Aged 20 months in French Oak.
