"Our 2017 Complant Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Beller Vineyard on Mt Veeder in the Napa Valley.  It is a co-ferment of Cabernet Sauvignon  and Petit Verdot.  Co-fermentation is a technique that creates a synergy between the color, aromatics and structure of two varieties.  One cannot achieve the same alchemy with simple blending.

 

The grapes were fermented on indigenous yeast and malo-lactic bacteria and aged in thin-staved Bordeaux chateau barrels of which 22% were new.  The wine was racked through the heads (soutirage traditionnel) every three months.  This is a method that Daniel learned while working in Pomerol in the 1980’s." - Daniel Baron, Owner
