Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine is among our best ever, with a bright, fresh Cabernet aroma of wild cherries, chocolate and fresh tobacco leaf. We look at the 2016 Neyers Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon as a legitimate Vin de Garde, with a long and attractive future.

Production Notes
After an extended maceration of almost 45 days, the tank was drained and pressed, and the new wine racked to 60-gallon French oak barrels, 40% of them new. We bottled the wine 18 months later with neither fining nor filtration.
Winemaker Notes
We experienced a period of cool weather in September of 2016 and the Cabernet Sauvignon harvest was pushed back to late September/early October as a result. This gave the fruit some additional time to approach ideal ripening levels, and we can see that physiological ripeness in the texture and flavor of the finished wine. Spring frost and cold, windy weather in May reduced the crop size such that our entire Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard produced barely 1000 cases. Still, the wine is very showy despite the small quantity, and even now we can already see a bright future for this bottling.
