2018 Cavalie 7 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Aromas of ripe blackberries, dried red fruit, warm spice and hints of cocoa and smoky char create vibrant layers of complexity. The dense, dusty tannins on the palate give this wine intense richness and texture. The graceful power of this wine results in a deep, lingering finish.

With a gentle southwest slope, our Cavalie vineyard has consistently produced some of our best Cabernet Sauvignon and Block 7 showcases that in this wine.
The grapes were harvested and sorted in the vineyards with our Selective Harvester to allow for maximum hangtime and flavor development. The fruit was not crushed in order to preserve as much whole-berry as possible. We fermented the fruit in a stainless teel tank with a combination of pumpovers and rack and returns to control extraction and flavors. After fermentation, the wine was racked to new and neutral French oak for malolactic fermentation. The wine was barrel aged for 20 months.
