Outlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
VINIFICATION2017 was an outstanding year for wine grapes in the Alexander Valley. Winter rains replenished the soil moisture and prepared the vines for healthy vegetative growth throughout the warm, dry spring and summer. The dry weather resulted in very small berries that were intense with flavor and packed with color. Steady ripening created stunning flavor development and built refined, structured tannins that were easy to extract during fermentation.
The Alexander Valley boasts rolling hills, hidden canyons, benchlands, steep peaks, sand and gravel riverbeds, riparian and chaparral habitats, volcanic geology, and redwood groves. Our vineyards lie throughout the region - each revealing a unique dimension of the topography and reminding us of the importance of preserving the natural beauty and diversity of the valley. From the valley floor to cliffside plantings, our small vineyard parcels tell the story of Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley.
The grapes were handpicked in the morning in early September and fully crushed and destemmed before stainless steel fermentation and 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak barrels of varying toasts for 18 months. The wine is elegantly approachable upon release with an aging potential of up to 10 years.
TASTING NOTES Deep ruby-red in color, the 2017 Outlot Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich nose filled with cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate. Full-bodied with a plush entry, the palate has abundant raspberry and black cherry fruit balanced by bright acidity and fine tannins that carry through to the medium-firm finish.

Three Vineyard Blend:Estate fruit was harvested from the northern end of Dry Creek Valley, where these Bordeaux varietals excel. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec were hand-picked just a mile from the winery. Here these varietals develop exceptional character on the vineyard sites situated on the valley bench. The vines receive the right amount of sun and cooling fog which develops optimal flavors in the grapes. Careful vineyard management during the growing season defines the style even more.
Winemaking:The growing season of 2017 was a good one with plenty of rain and later on warm temperatures which set a very good growth cycle and developed the flavors and maturation of the grapes. While there was a heat spike at the beginning of September the varietals held up well. The fruit was picked the final week of September. The culmination is of great quality with a high concentration of flavors and a good level of acidity.
The grapes are de-stemmed and cold-soaked for 48 hours. Inoculated with the Bordeaux yeast strain, fermentation followed in stainless steel tanks. During this time, in order to get the best color and flavor, the juice is circulated over the cap daily and gently macerated to extract the color and flavors from the skins. Once dry the new wine is pressed and stored until barreled in the winter. The separate varietal lots were aged in American and French oak barrels for sixteen months in order to develop smoothness and complexity. The final blend of the four grapes adds deep character and a great flavor profile.
Tasting Notes: Dark red with purple hints around the edges. Aromas of dark ripe berries, dried herbs, and earthy tones introduce this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Soft tannins are framed by cherry, plum, and blackberry fruit followed by hints of oregano and bay leaf. Great structure and good acidity combine with a spicy finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar up to eight more years.

THE VINEYARDS: Chalk Hill is an appellation with, generally, warmer days than in the rest of the Russian River Valley, with a variety of volcanic and alluvial soils across the western foothills of the Mayacamas range, rising 200 to 300 feet in elevation. Here, at our Los Amigos Ranch, just South of Healdsburg, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot develop deep, bold flavors.
THE GROWING SEASON: Despite going into the 5th year of drought, 2016 was another fantastic growing year in the Russian River Valley. Yields were larger than that of 2015 while a slightly cooler August allowed the clusters to mature more slowly and evenly than the prior vintage, providing great flavor and color development.
THE WINEMAKING: Our single vineyard Cabernet is aged for 18 months in a combination of European and American oak. The wine is 100% Cabernet. We chose not to blend any other varietals to this particular vintage as the fruit was perfect, and the wine created displays all the attributes that we search for in our Cabernet Sauvignon.
THE WINE: This Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful dark ruby, crimson color. It exhibits lovely aromas of black cherry, coffee and molasses. The surge of juicy ripe cherry flavors layered with a touch of tobacco, leads to a pleasant lingering flavor of powdered cocoa and clove . The rich flavor and deep character of this balanced wine displays soft tannins which pair well with a nice prime rib. This Cabernet is very approachable now but can be cellared for many years.

Here, at our Los Amigos Ranch, just south of Healdsburg, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Sangiovese develop deep, bold flavors.

Yields were larger than that of 2015 while a slightly cooler August allowed the clusters to mature more slowly and evenly than that vintage, providing great flavor and color development.
THE WINEMAKING:With this blend, we strive for a boldly flavored, balanced, well structured red wine. To achieve this, we evaluate various lots and varieties grown at our Los Amigos Ranch. The 2016 vintage yielded delightfully ripe, richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese. We added Merlot to the blend to add opulence. They must be fermented and aged separately in European and American Oak for 18 months before blending and bottling.
