2014 Cabernet Sauvignon - Heart of the Hill Vineyard : Red Mountain
We first sourced this wine as a component of our 2011 Miscela, which was the plan for the following vintages, but this wine has been too delicious on its own in barrel tastings to blend away the terroir. We think you’ll like the extreme character of this upper Red Mountain location. So many dark berry fruit flavors that we must thank vineyard owner Scott Williams for his forethought in planting and raising such lovely wine. Enjoy! Bottled 7/23/16; 50 cases produced; Alcohol: 14.53%; pH 3.54, TA 6.23 g/L.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Heart of the Hill Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged 22 months in Export-style barrels of 50% new French oak by Quintessence and the balance seasoned French oak by Tonnellerie Vernou.
