2016 Cab Sauvignon
Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaking: Each lot was punched cap fermented in one-ton T-Bins by hand, then barreled down for 40 months aging in French oak; very unique in today’s world. The blends are made from the individual lots from that point a month prior to bottling.
Tasting Notes: Black currants, rich earth, and a hint of dark chocolate aromatics. This is a big full-bodied wine dominated by ripe currants complemented by some black cherry with mouth-watering mature tannins that are accented by a palate-pleasing spice. Brightly balanced, yet richly textured and complex with a long finish. This is the fourth MC Signature Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a special designation for wine given more aging time to better express its dynamic characteristics. This wine includes some of the extremely rare Secret Clone Cabernet in the blend.
Alcohol: 14.8% TA: 0.59% pH: 3.61 RS: 0.13% (very dry)
