Central Coast Winery of the Year 2015

Tasting Notes
The nose suggests a bouquet of black cherry, cedar shavings, crème de cassis and crushed cardamom seed. Layers of tart red plum, stewed tomato paste, dried herbs and ripe raspberry envelope the palate, while subtle tannin and a bright acidity further enhance flavors of steeped black tea and dried cranberry. A combined essence of seasoned leather, sweet pipe tobacco and whispers of balsamic glaze creates a lingering finish.

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.

 

Cass Vineyard
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.
