Jack London Dry Farmed Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Located in the Sonoma Mountain AVA above the dense fog level, the Jack London vineyards are one of the most unique terroirs in California. Influenced by Jack London’s passion for improving the land and farming sustainably, the steeply terraced vineyards benefit from morning sun followed by indirect light in the heart of the afternoon. The long, cool growing season of this area creates a beautiful complexity and balance in the fruit.

Winemakers Notes

The 2018 vintage was mild and dry leading to a more historically average picking date. Much of the Cabernet Sauvignon at Jack London was picked at the end of October but dry-farming led to concentrated fruit at an earlier date leading to an October 6th pick date. Due to the tannic nature of these grapes, we pressed the wine off the skins after only 13 days instead of the usual 20 days of maceration. The wine aged 17 months in oak barrels (60% new) with the majority of French oak from two coopers Nadalie and Berthomieu.
