Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers mixed berry aromas accented by an element of char. On the palate, juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors mingle with green olive, rhubarb and toasted oak. Moderate tannins, enhanced by the ripe fruit of this lively wine, inspire sip after sip.
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.
