The lots for Hestan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon are kept separate throughout winemaking to retain individual block and varietal characters. Small capacity fermentation tanks, carefully timed pump-overs and punch-downs, a mix of native and cultured yeasts, the finest French cooperage and extended aging result in a wine noted for its deep flavor and velvety tannins.
Aged in 100% new French Oak. An exotic, highly perfumed bouquet presents dark berries, cherry-vanilla, licorice, smoky oak and pipe tobacco. Smooth, palate staining dark fruit flavors show an intriguing blend of richness and energy, picking up floral pastille and mocha qualities with air. Smooth and seamless Cabernet, with strong finishing thrust and sweet, expansive persistence.
