2018 Tilth Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford
Harvested at 25.5 Brix on October 12, 2018 from Star Vineyard in Rutherford, the grapes were destemmed to an open-top fermenter where they were cold-soaked for three days before fermentation. A mixture of Punchdowns and Pumpovers were performed over the course of thirty days before the wine was pressed to ten new French Oak barrels and one neutral barrel. The wine was racked once after the first winter and aged for a total of twenty-two months in barrel before bottled finned and lightly filtered (non-sterile).
Fresh Blackberries, blueberries, and currants, layered with tobacco, tea lea, and cocoa spice. Fine tannins and energized acidity lead to a lively mouthfeel with a long finish.
