2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points - 2018 American Wine Society Commercial Wine Competition

81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec

Tasting Notes
The nose sparks with baked black cherry, dried blackcurrant and plum pith that lead with savory crushed cardamom and green tobacco leaf. Polished tannin and soft acidity bathe the palate while slowly unveiling essence of purple flowers and cranberry tart that hint of pomegranate balsamic reduction. The finish closes with toasted hazelnut, blackberry cobbler and nuances of Cherries Jubilee.

Winemaking
Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the largest planted acreage at Cass, thus we have the ability to choose fruit from a variety of sites, soils, and clones across the vineyard. Picked in early September, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction, which was necessary to match the ripe flavors of the vintage. Aged for 22 months in French oak.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Notes
The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 160-acre vineyard is planted to 11 varieties on a large terrace above the Huer Huero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
