The 2018 Stone Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from a blend of grape lots sourced from select Northern California vineyards in the Sloughhouse, Clements Hills and Mokelumne River sub-appellations of Lodi. Fully mature grapes were gently crushed and fermented in our “Australian designed” rotary fermenters. This process moderates fermentation temperatures and allows for full color extraction and maximum flavor development, without excessive heat or harsh tannin qualities.
Structure and fruit are what this wine is about. The full mature, but soft Cabernet Sauvignon tannins are rounded out and balanced by the subtle spice and a lovely smokey note with intense dark fruit flavors.
