Cabernet Sauvignon "Devoilée" North Yuba County
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: North Yuba, Renaissance Vineyard
Farming: 40+ year old own-rooted vines on decomposed granite and volcanic soils. Farmed organically by Aaron Cara at Frenchtown Farms. Very low yields - approx 1 ton/acre.
Winemaking: The grapes were picked in the morning and brought back to Treasure Island. They were foot-stomped in a bin at the winery and fermented with 100% stems without any inoculations or additions to the fermentation. The wine was pressed off into a used French oak barrel and aged for 24 months. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small sulfur addition.
