Vintage Notes
The grapes for 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from vineyards in the Central Coast AVA, where high winds, dry days, and ocean fogs create a cool, but very long, growing season. These growing conditions are ideal for grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, and lead to full, forward fruit flavors and ideal acidity. Grapes were harvested at an ideal balance of sugar and acid, and the wine was fermented in stainless steel. The wine completed malo-lactic fermentation in French oak barrels, where it aged for 12 months prior to bottling.

"Aromas of chocolate covered craisins, mint, and spice cake with a silky, fruity medium body and a juicy sour cherry and dark roasted nut finish. A nicely balanced sipper or table wine. Highly Recommended."
