2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Farmstead
It’s no secret that the 2011 harvest was one of the more challenging on record. The growing season began with a wet winter and spring, and continued with rainfall into mid-June that delayed bloom and disrupted fruit set, resulting in bunch shatter in parts of the region. The vintage ended with a long, cooler-thanaverage growing season and a later-than-average harvest beset with autumn rains. However, our more than 20 years of experience paid off, as we carefully tended our vines for balance. As a result, nature provided us with a beautiful moderate foundation of tannic and fully developed sugars and flavors – and we adapted our winemaking to capture this special character. The 2011 vintage surprises with aromatic intensity, finesse, balance and a compelling sense of place.
