Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
$28.99 – $313.10
Made from carefully selected fruit from the northernmost section of BHFV’s vineyard, the grapes are vine-ripened to the utmost and gently crushed and placed into stainless steel tanks during fermentation. After 10-14 days, the resulting wine is separated from its skins and the first free run is placed into small oak barriques, of which 20% are new American oak barrels. After 14-18 months of oak aging under careful supervision, with quarterly racking to assure quality, the wine is bottled. BHFV’s Cabernet Sauvignon’s richness is first noticeable in its deep red color. It offers up similar richness to the taste with its dark fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry and black currant with dark chocolate. Accents of coffee and smoke can be attributed to the oak influence. The tannins are subtle and firm, giving this wine great structure and superb aging potential.
