2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
One of our most beloved West-Paso sites, this vineyard is an anomaly: Cabernet Sauvignon planted wide-spaced, head-trained and dry-farmed on good old-fashioned St. George rootstock. Basically, exactly the opposite of the recommended methods for planting Cabernet. Nevertheless, this site consistently produces our most distinctive, singular Cabernet. The only thing it lacks is a bit of tannin, so we prefer to ferment this with some whole-cluster(50% in 2016). The Dodd family has farmed and curated this site since the late-1800’s.
