Winemaker's Notes:

Bob’s Burn Pile is Robert Young Estate Winery’s statement that “we can make a Cab that matches the richness and intensity of any Cab anywhere.” Every year Bob’s is the wine with the darkest color, the most powerful taste and aroma, and the longest finish of all our wines. We select the fruit for Bob’s from vines growing near the old burn pile where Robert Young burned the brush cleared from his ranch every spring. Only the ripest grapes are selected by taste from this area. At harvest it is easy to see that the Bob’s vines have been tended carefully. Crop size is one cluster per cane. Leaves have been stripped away from the fruit clusters. The fruit has no flaws- all grapes are dark black in color and taste ripe and juicy. The wine is aged in 100% new French oak barrels the likes of which are used by the top Bordeaux Châteauxs because of their tight grained nature.
