2011 Split Rock Cabernet Sauvignon

2011 Split Rock Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2011 Split Rock comes from a cool growing year which gave us a wine of moderate weight but distinctive balance and proportion. The bouquet invites with the scent of black currants, cherries and sugar cookie. The wine is lively on the palate, full bodied but not heavy, with the fresh flavors of currants and cherry, followed by molasses, toasted pecan and pomegranate liqueur. The wine finishes as it begins, with fresh fruit and velvety tannin, sweet cocoa and black raspberry. Thanks to its supple texture and refreshing minerality, it will complement a wide variety of dishes and can stand alone. Enjoy now and over the next decade.

Due to the limited availability of this item, the maximum order quantity is 60.

Vineyard Notes:

The Viluko Vineyards 2011 Split Rock Cabernet Sauvignon was made from a selection of 4- and 5-year old vines yielding less than 2 tons per acre. It is a smooth, seductive wine to be enjoyed now. The vineyard is planted to Clones 7, 8, 337, and 191 on a steep, gravelly hillside facing east by southeast, influenced by cool evening air from the Russian River. Most blocks are situated on 35% grade hillsides with elevation variances of 600 to 1100 feet above sea level.

Production Notes:

The fruit was hand-harvested on October 27, destemmed and allowed to cold soak on skins for 4 days prior to a native yeast fermentation followed by twice daily pump overs twice for 44 days. The juice was pressed into French oak barrels, 25% new, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for a total of 18 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
