Winemaker's Notes

We harvest our grapes by hand and carefully sort out any leaves or grapes that do not meet our high standards. After destemming and crushing the grapes, the fruit is fermented in stainless steel containers which allow us to heat or chill the juice to obtain optimum temperatures for better extraction of flavor and color. The Wild Boar Vineyard Cabernet is aged in 40% new barrels. Our barrel selection is primarily French but we are also using about 20% American oak barrels to add some different nuances to the wine. The Wild Boar Cabernet Sauvignon has firm tannins that support very bright, lively yet concentrated fruit. The result is a rustically styled wine that is accented with spicy black currants, anise and a touch of tobacco.
