Craftwork Cabernet Sauvignon
A mouthfilling Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe berry aromas and a hint of fresh tarragon, followed
by rich flavors of blackberry and cassis and a lingering sweet oak finish. The soft, yet structured,
tannins make it a terrific pairing with steaks, chops, and juicy burgers.
Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are destemmed, crushed, and fermented in small lots in open
top fermenters. Next the rm cap of skins and seeds that bubble up and form on the surface during
red fermentation is gently “punched down” several times a day. Punching down is a traditional
method that gives the skins as much contact with the fermenting wine as possible, allowing the color
and the phenols from the skins to be transferred to the wine. After a 10-day fermentation in stainless
tanks, the wine is aged with a combination of French and American oak to round out and soften the
rich, black fruit favors.
