2016 Ballard Lane Cabernet Sauvignon
Showcasing a dark garnet color in the glass, our Cabernet Sauvignon boasts alluring amounts of brambly fruit, savory spice and toasted oak on the nose. On the palate, rich flavors of plums and blackberries lead to a pleasant hint of vanilla and spice. A supple mouthfeel and velvety tannins add to the wine’s elegant appeal, while its lingering silky texture leaves a lasting impression.
METHOD OF PRODUCTION
The fruit was night harvested and crushed, 100% destemmed, within hours to maintain quality. The must was cold soaked for 24 hours to produce better color, aromatics, flavor and tannin extraction. Fermented within weeks with BDX and D254 yeast. Aged on French Oak for 6 months.
