in the vineyard : Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 was hand picked at optimum ripeness, sorted and vinified from a 20 year old bush vine block and an 12 year old trellised, dry land vineyard.

The combination of these two vineyards gives great structure, complexity and depth to the wine.

in the cellar : Grapes get pumped and plunged numerous times during a long fermentation period for maximum extraction. After fermentation, grapes were lightly pressed. Oaking – 18 months in 40% new, 60% 2nd fill barrels. MLF done in barrels. 95% French, 5% American oak.
