Winemaker Steven Mirassou Notes
Harvest Date: October 17 – 24, 2007 Fruit: 23% Clone 7 Cabernet from the Home Ranch; 15.4% each of clones 30, 191, and 337; and 30.8% clone 4 all from Ghielmetti Vineyard. The fruit came in with brix levels of just over 25o and a complex, ripe flavor profile. After destemming and crushing each separate lot of fruit was fermented in small, open-topped fermenters. After a cold-soaking period, the must was inoculated with yeast. Fermentation and maceration lasted about three weeks. Malo-lactic fermentation was induced in barrel. Aging: Final barrel selection resulted in 100% new oak, a blend of French and American barrels, time in barrel 24 months.
