2016 Crosby's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Crosby’s Reserve is a barrel selection of Cabernet Sauvignon (90%) and Merlot (10%). The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the foothills of the Vaca Mountains, then sorted and destemmed by hand into new French oak barrels for extended maceration: The 2016 fermented in a combination of stainless steel (35 days) and new French oak for 56 days. We pressed entirely by hand in our old hand-crank press, and aged the wine 24 months in all new French oak. On the palate -- blue fruited with blackberry jam, dark cocoa and roast coffee bean.
