Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Big Shot Vineyard, named for John Fetzer's brother, Joe Fetzer, is located on a hillside overlooking Saracina Ranch. Ruggedly terraced on a steep, southeast facing slope, it makes a bold statement. Positioned to avoid the late afternoon sun, the vines preserve their Bordeaux varietal character.
Production Notes
The grapes were destemmed into an open top fermenter, and native yeast fermentation began six days later. The juice was punched down by hand and, at dryness, drained directly into French Taransaud barrels, one third of which were new. Native malolactic fermentation was complete by late February. The wine remained in barrel on fine lees for 21 months. We racked it immediately prior to bottling, without filtration, on August 13, 2015.
Winemaker Notes
Classically black ruby in color, our inaugural release of Saracina Cabernet Sauvignon shows true varietal aromatics of currant, black olive, toasted oak, and savory herbs. The palate is supple and elegant, with rich black cherry flavors, graceful tannins, and a long finish.
