Winemaking tasting notes. "This big Cab has a dark plum color with very rich tannins and sweet, supple french oak notes. The palate displays big fruit which explodes with huckleberry and blueberry concentration. The really sappy mid palate finishes with boysenberry, cassis and integrated vanilla tannins."
The grapes are selected from premium coastal and cool climate growing areas within California and they only work with sustainable growers. The white wines are barrel fermented and aged on the lees. With the red wines, varietal fruit profiles are expressed through the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs, extended maceration before pressing and the use of older French oak. Vinum Cellars is committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach.
This classic Cab is perfect with a fine aged steak, filet mignon with a black peppercorn reduction, or a NY Strip with a wild mushroom and herb cream sauce. Appropriate sides are creamed spinach, scalloped potatoes and roasted beets.
