Our wine, SUNDRY, hints to the various soil types found in the specific appellation. In Paso Robles wine country, geological diversity abounds, and a single vineyard block may contain a multitude of soil types. Gravel, sand, silt and clay soils deliver a Cabernet Sauvignon with rich character.
Head Winemaker: Alison Crowe
Appellation: 100% California
Sundry Cabernet Sauvignon has a full fruit expression with refined structure and rich texture. Aromas of plum, black currant and cassis open into a silky mouthfeel of red and black fruit flavors. Nuances of chocolate, vanilla and oak round out the long, velvety finish.
After gently de-stemming the grapes, the must was fermented on the skins for up to two weeks at ~80°F. Warm temperature fermentation aids in extracting color and desirable tannins. The next step was pressing the fruit gently to avoid the overly drying tannins found in the seeds. After pressing, the wine was racked into oak barrels to age for several months prior to bottling.
This Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from our premier vineyard named “Estrella Vineyard” in Paso Robles. We looked to the northside of Paso Robles which has rolling hills and is warm and sunny with just the right conditions for a Cabernet Sauvignon that naturally has characteristics of wild berry and spice.
