CABERNETSAUVIGNON
WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
Delicate aromas of fresh cranberry and red cherry mingle with
enticing notes of cassis, chocolate and tobacco. The wine is
round, soft and refined with elegant flavors of red currant, freshly
cut herbs, vanilla bean and allspice. A structured mid-palate
with silky-soft tannins and a backbone of clean acidity create
an enduring finish, perfectly suited for enjoyment today or for
cellaring through 2027.

THE WINEMAKING
Approximately 60 vineyard blocks were harvested at optimal
maturity, and only the top lots were selected for blending in our
historic upright oak casks. The wine was then aged for 12 months
in 73% French oak and 27% American oak, of which 37% was new,
allowing the flavors to marry and tannins to fully integrate. This
blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
and 1% Malbec matured in bottle for two years before release.

THE VINTAGE
2011 was one of those challenging years where agility was needed
to overcome the challenges presented by Mother Nature. Despite
small yields and an unseasonably cool growing season, our
growers and their superb vineyard sites supplied the quality fruit
necessary for us to craft a silky, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon.

FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
This wine's old-world style makes it ideal for diverse food pairings.
It will shine with savory meat dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb
or roasted chicken, allowing the fruit in the wine to take center
stage. Play up the delicacy of the fruit by pairing this Bordeauxstyle blend with an unexpected cheese course like fresh goat
cheese with Herbes de Provence.
