2012 Mi Cielo, Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

This single vineyard Cabernet is source from a tiny hillside vineyard on the west side of Alexander Valley. This bowl shaped 3 acre vineyard has over 6000 vines in 4’ by 4’ spacing. This shape of this vineyard gives it exceptional drainage. Due to the slopes and spacing it has to be completely worked by hand and its small size gives us the ability to give our fruit the attention it deserves. A true expression of Terrior.

2012 Mi Cielo, Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

It was our intention to showcase the heights that Cabernet Sauvignon can achieve from our Estate and this wine shows it in spades. The wine bursts with dark berry and spices and builds gracefully to a gorgeous finish with tons of sweet fruit, graphite, cassis, and plenty of the unmistakable minerality that is a signature of our Estate. The 2012 growing season was an ideal one for Cabernet Sauvignon. The cool foggy mornings during the summer helped the grapes develop full flavor maturity while maintaining plenty of acidity. The wine was aged in 80% new French Oak for 20 months before bottling un-fined and unfiltered.
