Wine Profile
Production Notes
2013 was a great growing season for Cabernet with long warm days and cool nights. This temperature swing helped build great fruit intensity on the Kunde Estate. Picking at first light allowed the grapes to get to the winery chilled. Beginning with the crushing of the cold berries, we lengthened the cold soak time for 5 days in the tank, prior to letting the native yeasts take off. For balance and to preserve the rich fruit flavor, we pumped the wine two times daily. Each of the lots were aged in separate barrels until coming together four months before bottling. This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in our caves for 24 months in small French oak barrels (52% new) and bottled in December 2015.
Winemaker Notes
We love the opportunity to work with our mountain top vineyards to craft this crowd pleasing Cabernet. Not only do these vineyards at 1,400 ft. elevation have one of the best views of the Sonoma Valley, but the mountain grown fruit tends to have a flavor intensity and structure that is completely unique to the rugged terroir. These vineyards are ideal for true varietal expression, and blending in a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc rounds out the structure of this full bodied wine.
