Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Happy Canyon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blocks 8 & 9, Happy Canyon Vineyard and Brick Barn and Lucas & Lewellen Vineyard Syrah. Happy Canyon Vineyard is comprised of ancient upland soils, primarily clay loam, riddled with cobbles of chert and serpentine. These deposits were swept down the canyon over thousands of years then uplifted and weathered for thousands more. The result is shallow, low-nutrient topsoil. In this environment, the vines are stressed for nutrients and water. Root growth and vine vigor are limited, ensuring smaller vines and low yields, a perfect combination for growing intensely flavored grapes.
Production Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon: Fermented in 4 hectoliter open top insulated fermenters in our cold winery. This allows for a long cool (low extraction) maceration and darker fruit retention. Punched down three times daily. Pressed slightly sweet to allow for both primary and secondary fermentation to complete in barrel.
Food Pairing Notes
A great compliment to pasta bolognese, grilled meats and more!
