Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill - 750ML
Hand-harvested at night to ensure the fruitâ€™s freshness and varietal purity, each of the three vineyard blocks is fermented and barrel-aged separately. After the grapes are gently destemmed and crushed, the must from each of the three vineyard lots is cold-soaked in small, closed-top, stainless steel tanks for 48 hours to extract color, aromas, flavors and fine tannins prior to initiating fermentation (in the same tanks) with a cultured French yeast strain.
Once fermentation completes, the wines enjoy an extended maceration on their skins to fully extract color and flavor and soften tannins. After assessing the attributes of each wine, the three are blended and aged 22 months in French oak barrels, 66% new, to create a uniquely complex and intense Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks eloquently of its terroir.
