Mossback 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Chalk Hill, Sonoma
The term ‘mossback’ is an old expression for farmers, folks connected to their roots and to the land. The Giguiere family has a storied tradition of farming in the Dunnigan Hills, having produced the R.H. Phillips wines and the Toasted Head wines they have invaluable and long relationships with the best farmers in the region for sourcing fruit. Chalk Hill is a small AVA with a unique micro-climate that favors Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were all hand-harvested, destemmed and crushed into small stainless steel fermenters. They undergo a 24 hours “cold soak” to enhance the berry aromas before fermentation. Pumped over the wine twice a day to enhance color stability and aromas and pressed off at drynes into French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for 22 months. The final blend contains 13% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot. A super tasty Cab! Wine & Spirits scored this 92 points saying "Chalk Hill’s temperate climate and a warm, even growing season combined to grow this notably sleek (and surprisingly affordable) cabernet. It’s an elegant wine with a cool vibrancy to its floral and earthbound aromas. The tannins are firm at first, softening gradually toward a supple, lush cassis flavor. You can drink this now with steak, or age it another five years or more."
