Winemaker's Notes:

The 2002 Atlantic County Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from our vineyard on October 4, 2002. It as fermented to dryness over 14 days with Prise de Mousse yeast in a stainless steel fermenter and then racked to new air-dried American oak casks where it aged for one year. To ad to the complexity of the wine, the final assemblage was 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Chambourcin and 4% Petit Verdot , all from Atlantic County.
My Notes:

About Tomasello Winery:

Tomasello Winery is a small third-generation family Winery founded in 1933. Currently, the Winery produces over thirty different wines from grapes it grows on seventy acres. Its traditional wines include an Atlantic County Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin and Villard Noir as well as Never Oak Chardonnay to name a few. These Regional wines have garnered a number of awards and medals and are currently available in selected markets.

The Winery is perhaps best known, however, for the ”Tomasello Fruit Wine Portfolio”, a line of 100% naturally fermented fruit wines (Red Raspberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cranberry and Cherry) which are sold throughout the US and exported to a number of foreign countries. These wines are intense in their fruit character and are used as dessert wines, reduced in the sauté pan for entrée sauces, incorporated into baking recipes, in mixed drink concoctions and in kirs with sparkling wines.
