Winemaker's Comments
The 2013 growing season was another near perfect year. With only a day or two approaching 100 degrees, temperatures were steady and in the sweet spot of 85°-95F°. Dry conditions throughout allowed for ideal maturation and flavour concentration. The 2013 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits typical Mount Veeder cabernet characteristics of blueberry, with floral notes and minerality. Followed by a bit of raspberry and touch of herb, this wine has great texture and very approachable mountain tannins.

Grapes/Blend
82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6.5% Malbec, 4.5 % Cabernet Franc

Vinification
We hand-harvested grapes into lug boxes during cool morning hours, at an average Brix of 26.5°.

Maturation
The wine fermented in stainless steel and then underwent native malolactic fermentation in barrels to round acidity and softly integrate the vanillin character of French oak (80% new). After barrel aging for 19 months, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
