Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our second release of AUSTIN Cabernet Sauvignon remains focused on our goal to produce a wine true to ‘Paso Robles’. On the nose savory aromas intertwine with rich dark fruit nuances. On the palate, flavors evolve into layers of juicy blackberry, spicy nutmeg, toasted coffee and fresh vanilla bean. This medium to full bodied wine is finished with refined tannins and a distinguishable zing of acid to balance.
Vineyard Notes
The 2020 growing season and harvest was near normal in some ways and very unusual in others. Rainfall was below average with the bulk of the storms occurring in early winter and early spring. Vine growth and berry development was normal through spring. Then, summer brought several heatwaves slowing berry development slightly. However, October was warm and dry, which helped to quickly mature clusters. Harvest was condensed and flurried as most fruit ripened at the same time. Yields were down from estimates, but the berries were mature with dark red skin color and concentrated flavors.
Winemaker Notes
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested and fermented individually by vineyard lots and then barreled into a combination of French and American oak barrels, 10% of which are new. Wines were matured in oak for an average of 14 months and racked twice during barrel-aging before an initial blend was assembled in late September of 2021. Following another 3 months in 15% new French Oak, the blend was finalized and racked a final time before a gentle cross-flow filtration and bottling in mid-December 2021.
