For our efforts, we have been rewarded with a rich, full-bodied Cabernet, deep in color. The nose of the wine is lively with essences of dark berries, plum, dark chocolate, and toasty oak. The sweet, supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle; followed by a pleasant, velvety, lingering finish.</div> <div aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /></div> <u aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><big aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Technical Information</big></b><br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /></u><p aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Varietal Percentage:</b> 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Age of vines and soil type:</b> 17-25 year old vines panted in deep volcanic soils.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Date picked:</b> 9/11/07 -- 10/4/07.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Harvest Sugar:</b>&nbsp;26.8 degrees Brix.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Fermentation time/Temperature Range:</b> 11 days, 62-93 F.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Fermentation container/maceration:</b> Open fermentation in small containers, punched down twice a day.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /></p> <h3 aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><u aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Analysis at bottling</u></h3> <p aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Alcohol:</b> 15.1%<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">pH:</b> 3.66<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">TA:</b> .5.80 g/L<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">V.A.:</b> .61g/L<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">R.S.:</b> Dry.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /></p> <h3 aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0"><u aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Aging and bottling</u></h3> <b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Length/type of aging:</b> 32 months in 60 gal Oak barrels: 45% new French, 55% 2-3 year old French.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Bottled:</b>&nbsp;April 2010.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Approximate lifespan under proper cellar conditions:</b> 20+ years.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Number of cases produced:</b> 1979 cases.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Release Date:</b>&nbsp;October 2011.<br aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0" /><b aria-level="0" aria-posinset="0" aria-setsize="0">Winemaker:</b> Andrew T.
