Winemaker Flint Nelson Notes
This fine Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of a thinning experiment we conducted in our vineyard. It all started in 2005 when we divided a three acre block of Cabernet from our own Kestrel View Vineyard into three portions and thinned at two, three and four tons per acre. The two ton per acre trial made the best wine by far. Two tons per acre equates to leaving just one cluster per shoot or about sixteen clusters per vine. When we realized how special our two ton Cabernet Sauvignon was we repeated the experiment, and will continue to do so. The resulting wine possesses a deep plum-red color, becoming black at its center. The aroma is filled with dark concentrated fruit such as black cherries, black currants, blackberries, pomegranate ...more... and blueberry jam. While sifting through the layers of this complicated and complex wine you will be greeted by spices such as clove, nutmeg, cardamom, and cocoa As the wine continues to reveal itself, you will discover dried herbs, floral hints, sweet dark fruits, mineral, cigar box, and cedar. The wine is full bodied and round, with well integrated silky smooth tannins. The finished product is concentrated and elegant.
