The grapes for our 2019 Cabernet were harvested at the end of October 4th and October 15th, 2019. After destemming and cold soaking for 3 days the grapes were fermented using native and “designer” yeast for average of 10 days. Post fermentation, all lots were put through extended maceration for another 30-40 days. The wine was aged for 22 months in 29% new French and other European Oak barrels and the rest in neutral oak barrels. Our 2019 La Storia Cab has a dense ruby-purple color followed by abundant varietal aromas and flavors of blueberries, blackberry, and black licorice with hint of herbs and minerals. The predominately French oak aging contributes aromas of cocoa dust, vanilla and smokey maple. The mouth feel is medium dense, fresh and juicy with balanced acidy and very soft tannins for a young wine. The alcohol content is balanced and the acidity is relatively high suggesting excellent longevity for this wine. Drink now or age for 5-7 years. Cheers!
