Winemaker's Notes

The Dry Creek Valley viticultural area is known for producing rich flavors in each of the varieties grown there, mainly reds. Bob Fredson selects the grapes for STG Cabernet Sauvignon from top-rated vineyards in this favored region. The growing season here is both warmer and somewhat longer than that of the neighboring Russian River Valley, allowing Cabernet grapes to reach ideal maturity. STG Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from hand-harvested grapes. Following fermentation for seven says at 85°, the wine remained on the skins for two weeks to extract its notably deep color. The wine was matured in 50-gallon American oak barrels, where it also underwent complete malolactic fermentation. This is a typical Dry Creek Cabernet: deep ruby color; cheery aromas with spice and oak; rich, lasting flavor smooth, lingering aftertaste.
