Six Ridges Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Alexander Valley lies in the northeast of Sonoma County where mountains shelter the vines from the Pacific Ocean's cooling influence. This warm climate is ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon wines of intense flavor and silky tannins, and the excellent drainage of the rich, gravelly soils provides unique depth and character to the wines.
2017 had an earlier than usual bud break, and an unusually pleasant Spring which greatly accelerated the harvest date, Warm temperatures throughout the summer coupled with early bud break gave us one of the earliest harvest in years. We harvested our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon grapes between September 29th and October 24th. Each vineyard lot was fermented separately on the skins for 15 to 30 days, then pressed, settled and racked to barrel where the wine was aged for 19 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak.Download Full Details
