Crushed & Cured

Fog Mountain, Cabernet Sauvignon, California, USA, 2021


This Cabernet Sauvignon opens with enticing aromas of blackberry, bramble, violet and a hint of spice. On the palate, well-integrated tannins and plush fruit lead to a moreish finish.

The grapes underwent a 48-hour cold soak prior to fermentation. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, followed by 10-15 days maceration on the skins to extract tannins and lend structure to the wine. Ageing took place predominantly in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh primary fruit aromas, with around 5% of the wine aged in neutral French oak barrels for 12-14 months, to round out the tannins.
