Sourced from a quartet of top-tier, biodynamically farmed vineyards - Champoux, Wallula, SeVein and Loess, Requiem Cabernet Sauvignon has a very impressive pedigree. From the moment the first drop hits your palate, the structure and complexity of this Cabernet is striking - and the fruit is absolutely explosive! Look for flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and black plum fruits followed by classic tobacco leaf, cedar, graphite, chocolate and baking spice notes. This bright, full and authentic Cabernet starts out really great but then, as it breathes, just gets better and better!
Grapes were harvested in the latter half of September at between 24 and 27 brix, depending on elevation. The grapes were gently pressed into a combination of open top wood and stainless steel fermenters, ranging from 2 to 5 tons in capacity. After a 3 day cold soak, native yeasts were allowed to begin fermentation, which lasted for 18 to 32 days depending on the tank. Once dry, all the wine was racked into 225L barrels from Taransaud (15%), François Frères (30%), Darnajou (25%) and Saury (30%) for 24 months - 40% new oak.
