2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Our exclusive Reserve wines are hand harvested and triple hand sorted here at Wise Villa in the vineyards you see carefully tended before you. Crafted in small lots, each wine is designed to showcase the finest expression of the varietal. After hand harvesting, the grapes are destemmed, cold soaked with their natural yeast present and then go through a series of fermentation days with punch downs, extended maceration, and are pressed direct to barrels on full lees for aging. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Night Owl are aged in 50% new French and Minnesota oak, maple and hickory barrels and 50% neutral oak for 20 months. All of our Reserve wines are then finished with an additional 12 months on 100% new oak.
**For every 2 bottles of Reserve wine you purchase, you’ll receive a FREE branded wooden wine box! ($45 Value)**
Juicy dark fruit and spicy complexity lead to a rich and full body to finish on our 15 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. Fruit notes of dark cherry, blackberry, and plum or complemented by spice complexities of clove, cinnamon, vanilla, black pepper, and tea leaves, with hints of chocolate and coffee. Extended barrel aging also contributes notes of earth, forest, leather and tobacco. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine carries complexity and weight and delivers dark fruit and dark spice with a rich mouth feel, incredibly complex and pleasing. These grapes are grown on our north facing slopes. Only 80 cases were produced.
