Subject To Change Cabernet Sauvignon Millen Vineyard "Egomaniac" Carneros 2018

Unit price per

Grape(s): 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

AVA: Carneros

Vineyard: Millen Vineyard, a 40 year old organic family vineyard where everything is done 100% organically. Neither synthetic herbicides nor insecticides are used and all sprays are timed in relation to the moon.
Transitioning to dry-farming, the vineyard is watered minimally two or three times a year depending on vintage conditions. Composting and cover crops are used to increase the organic material, life and vitality of the soils. The hot days and cool nights as a result of close proximity to the bay give the wine classic Cabernet concentration while maintaining lower ABV and snappy acidity.

Method: The fruit was picked in late October and destemmed, receiving one pump over per day during the three week fermentation. It saw 5 weeks of extended maceration after primary fermentation for 8 weeks of total maceration. The wine was raised in 500L barrels for 10 months, and then racked once to tank for blending 4 weeks before bottling. The finished wine was bottled unfined, unfiltered, with zero sulfur.

ABV: 12.3%
