Vinification

With soils similar to Bordeaux, the Alexander Valley is producing some of the world’s best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. We have been lucky enough to source from the Reynoso Vineyard for many years, so we are excited to continue the tradition and produce another great vintage. The 2019 wine harvest started about 2 weeks later than normal due to a wetter winter. With the extended cool growing season, grapes ripened at lower sugar levels which many vintners celebrated as this meant the fruit was full of flavor, fresh acidity & superb balance. Once the fruit arrived in Oceanside, we destemmed and processed it here on site. The grapes then cofermented with 2% Petit Verdot to add another layer of complexity, color & tannin.
