Tower 15, 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
To make this wine we sourced sustainably farmed Cabernet Sauvignon from Old Oak Vineyard in the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles. The vineyard is named after a spectacular live oak tree, that is estimated to be more than 500 years old. The grapes were harvested on October 1st, 2018 at 24.9 brix with a pH of 3.68. This wine was fermented in small open-top tanks and punched down by hand three times daily during its initial fermentation. It was then barrel-aged for 18 months, during which it underwent malolactic fermentation, in 30% new French oak barrels, balanced with neutral French oak barrels prior to bottling.
