2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

 

This wine is 100% Cabernet from our Alexander Valley property.  It receives open-top fermentation with pump-overs twice a day and punch downs three times a day.  After malolactic fermentation, the wine is racked to and aged for 18 months in French oak (32% new barrel).  

 

Tasting Notes

 A distinct nose of rose petal, boysenberry, and cedar with flavors of clove and smoke and raspberry.  Finishes with lingering, creamy, notes of berry. An elegant, sophisticated wine. Pairs well with rich red meats or strong cheeses.  Try with filet mignon, pheasant or walnuts over a rich blue cheese.
