Vineyard Notes
Elephant Mountain Vineyard took full advantage of the early spring flowering which was the earliest ever in late May. Canopy design and vine health was ideal while summer temperatures were hotter than average with many July and August days over 100°F, Andrew Schultz managed the watering of the vineyard perfectly. Verasion was early and swift, a hallmark of great vintages. Our fruit we shaded with healthy canopies balancing acidity and sugar ripeness while protecting against sunburn. In September, the vintage was record breaking in total heat units and picking began.
Winemaker Notes
Starting the morning of September 21 we hand harvested Cabernet Sauvignon. We hand mixed for two weeks then finished fermentation in new and mature French oak puncheons. We aged on lees reductively developing savory tones complimentary to the powerful fruit. After 20 months, we selected the final blend. We then filtered for purity and aging stability. The blend offers Cabernet Sauvignon in a powerful style. This rich wine will is enjoyable with a host of foods, especially proteins.
