2014 Plus One

Winemaker Notes: This is our 6th vintage of Plus One, and it is quite possibly our best. It reminds me of a blend of our 2009 and 2012 Plus One with amped up intensity. Deep ruby-purple color with impeccable balance, exceptional complexity, and a fine, long finish. Well delineated notes of black cherry, cassis, graphite, tar, orange peel, espresso, nutmeg, and dried herbs on the bouquet. The palate offers a significant core of fruit with notes of cassis, blackberry, black cherry, espresso, gravel, vanilla, anise, allspice, incense, and cigar tobacco. The very long vibrant finish has notes of cassis, thyme, leather, and cigar tobacco. Substantial tannins with a slight firmness that will require some patience. As usual this is a classically styled Cabernet Sauvignon. It should hit maturity in 8-10 years and gracefully evolve for 15-20 years.

Fermentation: The wine had a pre-fermentation maceration of 145 hours. 100% Native fermentation. The wine was punched down by hand 2 times each day during maceration and fermentation. All individual wine components, including free run and press fractions, were kept separate until final blending. 

Cooperage: The oak profile is 60% new French oak (predominantly from Troncais and Alliers) and 40% neutral French oak. The wine achieved its sparkly brilliance from 3 judicious rackings, no fining agents were employed. The wine was very lightly filtered to capture any remaining lees.
