Why You'll Love It

Once in the glass, this 2016 Clos Pegase Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon reflects an opaque dark purple core. As the aromatics waft towards the nose, they deliver generous layers of cassis, antique wood, cigar box and black currant. On the palate, brooding dark fruits give way to briar, black currant and forest floor. More subtle notes of graphite, wet clay and seasoned leather, transition across the palate. The tannins are nicely balance by the lush fruits which are in-turn kept fresh by the crisp acidity. This 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon continues to evolve on the palate showing depth and complexity with a lengthy finish.

Winemaker Notes

Each block was hand harvested individually and brought to the winery where the clusters were sorted again before being destemmed. 50% of the grape clusters were crushed and 50% were left as whole berries during fermentation. The must was then allowed 2-4 days to cold soak, followed by a warm fermentation using a variety of different yeast strains. With two pump overs a day, the wine was pressed off the skins once it was dry. Wine was then sent to barrel to undergo malolactic fermentation. After fermenation was complete, wine was racked on more time and then allowed to rest in barrel for an additional 18 months in our caves. When the wine was ready, we gently filtered and bottled in mid-May of 2018
