Following a brief cold soak to encourage extraction of color and tannin from the fruit, the must was fermented at warm temperatures for four to six days. The wine was then aged on oak until Cabernet’s naturally firm tannins were softened and the wine structure was balanced. We blended Petite Sirah grapes with the deepest color to enhance the wine’s color and structure. The finished wine has a round, plush mouthfeel and signature bold flavor.
ABOUT THE WINE
Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon is big and bold, opening with a smooth, full-bodied palate with rich, intense flavors of blackberry, blueberry, coffee and mocha. The addition of Petite Sirah added to the wine’s abundant dark fruit notes and distinctive structure. Hints of toasted oak and black cherry linger on the silky, lengthy finish.
