Description

The grapes for the Frei Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon were selected from the coveted hillside vineyards in the Alexander Valley, where a unique combination of soil and climate work together to create unparalleled complexity and flavor. The grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon were gently destemmed, but not crushed, leaving a significant portion of whole berries for fermentation. A full eight to ten days of contact between the grapes and the skins allowed us to extract intense color and flavor before fermentation. After primary fermentation, the wine completed malolactic fermentation to soften the acid structure and add complexity.

Sommelier Review

“Including 11% Petite Sirah, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 30% new American and French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with exuberant crème de cassis, and makes this wine a full bodied expression for a Cabernet Sauvignon from this region. Best for steaks!”
