Winemaker Timothy Milos Notes
Split Rock is a selection from vines that conform to the undulating hillsides beneath their rows. Roots struggle less here, soils are deeper, more fertile. Berries grow plumper and rounder creating a wine that is approachable in its youth. We expect the Split Rock to be expressive of bright fruit and softer tannins. The 2014 Split Rock Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a selection of six to eight year old vines and yielded about two tons per acre. Fruit was hand-harvested over four days in October and fermented as four separate vineyard blocks. Clusters were hand sorted during picking and again at the winery, then fruit was destemmed and allowed to soak on the skins for four days prior to wild yeast fermentation. Juice was pumped over twic ...more... e each day for 38 days allowing for maceration on the skins before being pressed into French Oak barrels where it underwent malolactic fermentation. Aged 18 months, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. A youthful bouquet lures with scents of blackberry, plum and pipe tobacco. Lively flavors of cranberry and pomegranate integrate with savory herbs and a touch of coffee and cocoa that bounce along the palate in hand with velvety tannins to a vibrant finish.
