Food Pairings for Toasted Head
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in carefully selected North Coast Vineyards. These temperate sites allow our Cabernet grapes to ripen slowly and evenly throughout the growing season, developing concentrated varietal flavors balanced by ripe tannins and bright acidity. Winemaking After the grapes are crushed and destemmed, we cold-soak the juice at 55ºF for 24 hours before inoculating the juice with the D254 yeast strain (which accentuates the rich fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon), to instigate fermentation. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 85ºF for 7 to 10 days to fully extract color and flavor. A secondary malolactic fermentation softens the wine’s acidity and enhances its rich mouth feel. Aging for 18 – 20 months in 59-gallon French and American oak barrels, with about 20% new barrels, mellows our fine Cabernet Sauvignon adding a toasted vanilla tone to its rich, dark-fruit flavors. Winemaker's Note Our Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant cherry and cassis aromas framed by toasty, spicy oak scents. On the mouth filling palate, the wine’s juicy, red-fruit flavors are balanced by firm, supple tannins and a savory, toasted oak tone. Delicious now, our Cabernet’s depth and structure will enable it to age well in bottle for several years.
