Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2011 Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has the aromas of wild berry and forest that distinguish this vineyard, even in a cooler year. Earth and sage complement the fruit and give a depth of flavor on the midpalate. The spicy oak and vanilla components add complexity, while the gentle tannins from this vintage are approachable now.
Vineyard Notes
Named for the branding iron owned by the proprietor, the eight-and-a-half acre Branding Iron Vineyard lies in western Oakville, close to the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The vineyard is comprised of well-drained clay loam and the vines are vertically trellised to maximize sunlight and open the canopy. The area’s warm climate and sun exposure in both the morning and afternoon is perfect for slowly ripening the fruit, which often benefits from a long hang time.
