The cade Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley is made from two of Napa's most renowned vineyards: Kenefick Ranch Vineyards in Calistoga and Hanson-Hsieh Vineyard in Oak Knoll.
The wine received 18 months barrel aging in 100% French Oak (60% New). Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel immediately after primary fermentation. The wine was racked quarterly once malolactic fermentation was complete.
We use several different coopers for the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon including Allary, Gamba, Boutes, Taransaud, Quintessence, Saint Martin, and Mercier. Of these coopers we are sourcing the oak from several different forests as well as using a combination of Medium plus and Medium Long toasting levels.
