2016 Barrel Burner Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful example of Cabernet from California, leading with enticing aromas of brambly fruit, cassis and vanilla. On the palate, ripe dark fruit flavors are accented by hints of toasted oak and subtle savory notes. Balanced tannins and a full-bodied structure add to the pleasurable mouth-feel, further enhanced by the wine’s long, lingering finish. An all-around great choice for charcuterie or hearty foods like grilled burgers and prime rib, this
rich, fruit-forward wine proves that Cabernet is the king of California.
The grapes entered the winery as cold as possible to preserve quality by being harvested at night.
The grapes were destemmed and gently moved to tank, where they cold soaked for anthocyanin
extraction from the grape skins. The grapes were naturally fermented, and pressed off when sugar
levels went dry.The wine was cellared in topped up vessels for 12 months before bottling.
