Grapes for our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon are grown on the Kreck Family's south facing vineyard in the southern end of Alexander Valley. After harvest, the clusters are gently de-stemmed and then filled into stainless steel tanks. Preceding the fermentation is a 4-6 day cold soak. The must is then inoculated with yeast then mixed 2-3 times per day. After pressing, the new wine is filled into 100% new French oak barrels and aged for approximately 18 months. This wine has characteristics of blackberry, cassis and anise which give it a deep and attractive complexity. Aging in new french oak lends layers of richness. Pair with a grilled New York strip with a spicy rub, a marinated tri-tip or any bold cheese. With only 92 cases, this is an extremely limited production wine. Enjoy now or age for several more years.
