Pine Hawk Vineyard, Paso Robles
Harvested on September 13, 2014
Demeter Certified Biodynamic
This wine was de-stemmed and punched down twice a day while it fermented naturally with its own native yeasts. It was aged in 40% new French oak for 22 months.
This wine is full bodied with excellent structure yet velvety texture on the palate. It exhibits ripe plums and cassis fruit with savory overtones and hints of sage. This lush wine is framed by a firm but supple tannin structure with hints of rose petals and classic cigar-box leading into a smoky finish.
I never thought I would make Cabernet Sauvignon until I met Kathy D’Andrea from Pine Hawk Vineyard in Paso Robles, and saw her dedication for growing the best grapes possible and her commitment to biodynamic farming. You can try the very first Verdad Cabernet Sauvignon for yourself and let me know what you think.
