Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘California’, Heron

This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from three growing regions in Northern California: Mendocino County, Pope Valley, and Clarksburg. Light crushing, just breaking of the skin of the berry to allow for greater fruitiness in fermentation. Light pressing to avoid green tannins. Closed stainless steel fermentation, minimizing oxygen exposure and emphasizing fruitiness. Aged for about nine months in new French oak barrels with medium-toast.
