Wente Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Each vineyard was harvested separately and fermented in upright fermenters. Rack and return was performed twice daily. Rack and return is the process of draining all of the free-run juice off of the cap, then pumping the free-run juice back over the top of the fermenter. This method increases color and tannin extraction and improving mouthfeel through the integration of oxygen.

Tasting Notes:

Our Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon has lush fl avors of cherry and plum, with hints of cedar and violets in the nose. The tannins are smooth, making this a great pair with roasted and grilled meats, or fuller fl avored fi sh such as salmon and Ahi tuna.
