Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
As a nerdy experiment in 2016, we sourced Cabernet Sauvignon from three different vineyards and tried to give them fairly similar treatments in the cellar. They were all picked around 25 Brix and left about 13% whole-clus- ter for fermentation. After harvest, we set aside 2 barrels of each wine for vineyard designation. Each lot was aged 5 months in the exact same new French oak barrel (from LeGrand Cooperage) and 10 more months in neutral oak. Rolling View’s Cab Sauv is probably the most restrained of the three with a light spice, notes of tart cranberry and more tension between acid and tannin.
