Tasting notes

This wine exhibits a deep ruby color and a rich, intense nose of cassis, blackberry, black cherry, cigar box, graphite, mint, and dried rose petals. The deeply penetrating flavors are wrapped around a tightly wound core marked by cassis, black licorice, gravel, graphite, minerals and roasted coffee beans. The lush, silky tannins provide a nice supporting canvas for the palate complexity. The very long finish picks up notes of dried cherries, leather, tobacco, and hints of scorched earth. This wine combines depth, elegance, and concentration in an impressive package. Properly cellared, this wine will gracefully evolve for 15-20 years.

Production notes

The wine had a pre-fermentation maceration of 140 hours. 100% Native fermentation. The wine was punched down by hand 3 times each day during maceration and fermentation. All individual wine components, including free run and press fractions, were kept separate until final blending. The oak profile is 50% new French oak (predominantly from Troncais and Alliers) and 50% 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. The alcohol is 14.4%, pH is 3.74, and the titratable acidity is 6.1 g/L. 126 Cases produced.

2018 Rasa Vineyards ‘Plus One’ Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2018 ‘Plus One’ is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine sourced form from very old vines in the Kiona Vineyard. The palate is unbelievably elegant and highly refined with silky tannins the frame a beautiful core of red and dark fruits alongside red rose petals, cigar ash and an exceedingly long finish. Everything is beautifully balanced here, as fine grained tannins hold everything in place. Wait for the exceedingly long finish. Drink 2021-2035- 96 Points, Owen Bargreen, Vinous
