Winemaker's Notes

Our 1998 Cabernet is an exceptional wine from yet another exceptional year. The fruit was picked in mid-October with an ideal brix reading of 23.8. The wine was held in small French and American Oak barrels for a period of 20 months and lightly filtered to protect the wine and maximize the texture and feel on the palate.

The 1998 Cabernet is young, a little wild, but will continue to evolve with proper bottle aging and storage. This strikingly complex vineyard designated Cabernet will compliment grilled rib eye steaks and comparable foods.
