2012 Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes are grown on an organically farmed vineyard situated in a private valley in the foothills of the western edge of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley. Elevated 500 feet above the Russian River, the valley enjoys a warm climate that virtually never sees winter frost. The hills even harbor occasional citrus trees. The East-West running valley is planted with 12 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vines on the steep eastern hillsides composed of loamy, metamorphic soil. The valley drains a large watershed where a winter stream rapidly fills up a lake which provides irrigation water in summer. The vineyard is composed of three blocks, a steep-sloping 2 acre, 13 year old parcel, wedged in between an arroyo and a knoll of Spanish oaks; a 6 acre block and the 4 acre roadside block are split by the arroyo which feeds the lake. In the summer of 2008, the latter two blocks were ripped out and replanted with four different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Aged 24 months in 100% French Oak Coopers: Ermitage, LeRoi and Seguin Moreau.  Bottled: Oct 2014 - 100% unfined and unfiltered
