The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve was produced from grapes grown on a self-rooted, dry-farmed, head-trained vineyard in the Zayante area of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The fruit clusters had very small, loose berries that were destemmed into an open top fermenter. Over a 15 day fermentation process, the cap was punched down into the must one to three times a day. Free run was separated from the pressed skins and kept separate throughout a two year barrel aging process. Only eight barrels of Cabernet Sauvigion were produced in 2014 and two of them were specially selected for the Reserve blend.
