Winemaker Jac Cole Notes
We are proud to release our 2012 Howell Mountain single vineyard Cabernet. Our Ami’s vineyard is a 2 acre parcel sitting atop the La Jota Ridge at 2,000 feet elevation. We harvested 5.3 tons in 2012 and the grapes were cold picked at first light then de-stemmed and crushed to tank and kept at 50 F for three days prior to fermentation. Fermentation lasted 14 days and then the wine was kept on the skins an additional 18 days of extended maceration to further enhance tannin development. 20 months in 60% new French oak completed the aging process. Aromas of dark spices and dry cocoa mingle with bright red cherries and dried cranberry. The silken full bodied palate echoes these complex flavors and extends to a jammy finish.
