Winemaker's Notes

This was an exciting year for Cabernet Sauvignon at the Longbottom Family's Padthaway vineyards. The grapes were so good that they all qualified to be included in the top of the line Reserve label. The exceptional fruit was barrel fermented and matured for 12 months in 25% French oak and 75% fine grain American oak. The yield of the vines was 3 tons per acre and only 2900 dozen were made. The resulting wine has a delicate leafy varietal nose with plum overtones and fine oak notes. The palate is silky smooth with an intense sweet fruit entry, refined complex structure, well-integrated oak and lovely spicy flavors.
