Mutt Lynch Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley Canis Major Perotti Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

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.
