Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Our 2008 Kelleher "Brix Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon is big and bold with bright dark fruits balanced with spice on the nose. The firm tannin structure and dark cherry on the pallet lead to a long and persistent finish.
Winemaker Notes Fermentation: The grapes are handpicked at full maturity, when the tannins are fully developed. The fruit was hand-sorted both in the vineyard and at the winery. The grapes were cold-soaked in stainless steel tanks and the fermented with wild yeasts. During fermentation, the tanks were pumped over twice per day until dry. Once fermentation is complete, the wine was warmed up to 100 degrees and pumped over once per day for of five days, then the tank was drained over night. The wine was aged for 24 months in half new French oak barrels and half once-filled French oak. The wine was lightly fined with 1 egg white per barrel.
