All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from our 27.78 acre Reserve Block here at the Estate. Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon clusters are night harvested, allowing the fruit to remain cool for cluster sorting followed by berry sorting, all done by hand. The must is then cold soaked for up to five days. After fermentation is complete, barrel aging takes place in our dedicated, gravity-flow, and dual level Reserve barrel rooms. The wine is racked barrel to barrel and aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, followed by over a year of bottle-aging. The 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the elegant tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet.
