2021 Glassmaker Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard: Cole Ranch, Cole Ranch AVA, Ukiah, Mendocino. Coastal mountain terroir of alluvial soils, planted in the early 1970s. USDA organic farming
Making of: the grapes were destemmed and gently fermented with pump-overs and occasional punch-downs, to preserve the flower aromas. Pressed and then aged for 6 months in barrel. Unfined, unfiltered, 20 ppm at bottling.
Personality: “This wine is so pretty! Flowers, roses, cherries. It speaks to the coastal mountain terroir of alluvial soils, cold nights and cool air from the redwood canyons,” the winemaker says.
