Winemaker's Notes

From the vineyard to the winery, Alamos Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening tempratures in Catenas high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang-time, preserving the fruits full spectrum of aromas and flavors. At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed (only free-run juice is used) and fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled. Two to four year old barrels are used to age the wine, which is only lightly fined.

The results of this careful handling is a wine with a deep nose, intense reddish-purple color and a concentrated nose of plum and blackberry fruit, laced with essence of hazelnut and nuances of cedar, cigar box and chocolate. The palate is medium to full bodied, with mature tannins and a long finish. Ready to drink now and over the next 2-5 years. -José Galante, Chief Winemaker
