Winemaker Notes

Don’t let the name petite fool you, there is nothing small about this wine. From the vineyard, where the medium sized berries develop an incredible density of flavor and color. To the winery, where we maximize flavor and color extraction. This wine is all about the big, bold and intense characteristics. 2018 was a cool vintage, allowing the Cabernet Sauvignon to reach full ripeness slowly while retaining fresh fruit & acidity. Add to this natural tendency for things big and intense that we fermented this wine on the skins in 1 ton picking bins for 3 weeks, including a cold soak and extended maceration, the resulting wine is dark in color and flavor, with bold fine-grained tannins and acidity to match. To match the natural flavors from the grape, we aged the wine on 40% new oak, mostly darker toasts from France and Minnesota, to contribute complexities of coffee, chocolate, roasted meat and vanilla. This wine is intensely complex with a long lingering finish.
