|Wine maker notes
|The grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon were gently destemmed, resulting in some whole berries. The must was fermented in a combination of cone sweep, rotary and upright fermenters for five to seven days at a maximum temperature of 85°F to retain fruitiness and soften the tannins.
|Six Generations of Winemaking Tradition
The Mirassou family has been growing grapes and crafting superior wines in the sun-drenched hills of California since 1854, earning the family the proud distinction of being America’s oldest winemaking family.
