Wild Horse Cabernet Sauvignon V21 750ML

sale price $26.99
The 2021 Wild Horse Cabernet Sauvignon has dark cherry aromas with hints of vanilla bean, coconut and warm spices. Full bodied wine with sweet black fruit flavors, tea leaves and toasted oak. It has fine tannins and a pleasant astringency. The finish is long and smooth. <br><br> <b>VITICULTURAL NOTES</b><br> We chose the El Pomar and San Miguel Districts as the source for our Cabernet Sauvignon, as they are the best sub-AVAs Paso Robles offers for this variety. Sunnybrook Vineyard’s predominantly Arbuckle Complex soils are composed of well-drained clay and are ideal for Cabernet. A former cattle ranch situated on rolling, golden hills among ancient oak trees, Sunnybrook is planted to various clones and rootstocks and possesses a unique blend of terroir within the ranch itself. The balance of fruit was sourced from our smaller San Miguel Vineyard, situated near the Salinas River. Wide-open and flat, San Miguel provided an excellent juxtaposition to Sunnybrook, with loamy, sandy soils from the Hanford and Greenfield series. <br><br> <b>WINEMAKING NOTES</b><br> Tried to let the fruit hang as long as needed to achieve the optimal flavors. The grapes were harvested in early morning, at the coolest time of the day. Then they were destemmed and crushed to tank were they fermented on skins until the optimal amount of tannin and flavor had been extracted. The wine was then pressed off of skins and aged in oak until the optimal flavors had been extracted before proceeding to being blended.
