Winemaker Chris Barrett Notes
2008 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon expresses plush aromas of cassis, black currants and cocoa topped with sweet vanilla. The elegant entry of loamy earth, mocha and cherries layer your palate for a finish of balance and concentration.

Sonoma County’s reputation for wine is among the best in the world. And, Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most abundant grapes grown in Sonoma County. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are hand picked and gently destemmed into a tank. Then they undergo a cold soak, which extracts color and flavors before fermentation begins while retaining the grape’s freshness. After fermentation is complete, the fruit continues with an extended maceration to improve mouthfeel, balance, and encourage softer tannins. ...more... Fruit for our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from some of our most trusted growers, as well as our award-winning Estate fruit from our ranch high in the hills over Dry Creek Valley.
