Red Mare

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Red Mare Cabernet Sauvignon is always appreciated for its balance.  We strive to make a wine that is measured, elegant, respectful of place a time.  But what does that really mean?  It means that we might harvest a touch earlier than some, it means that we might make financially painful decisions at blending time in pursuit of that balance, it means that we look for the character of each site and each vintage to shine above our desire to make the wine taste a certain way.  As a result of that, our wines are always expressive, are known for their supple silky tannins and with the natural acidity retained from our winemaking style, they age beautifully.  

While 2015 was another dry year, late winter rains fully recharged the soil profile giving the vines an excellent push come spring.  This balance between crop load and canopy allowed for dappled sunlight and encouraged the development of complex flavors.  We would be even more grateful for the leaf cover during the sporadic but intense heat storms of September and October.  Already expecting a smaller vintage after three years of drought, cool temperatures extended bloom from a usual average of 10 days to almost 40 days in some vineyards resulting in an even lighter crop load. This smaller crop brought us an early harvest with a wonderful concentration of flavor and lush mature tannins
