2001 Cabernet Sauvignon
Harvesting and vinification for our Jardine selection occurred identically to that of our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. During fermentation, all lots from the Jardine vineyard were kept separate until blended as the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon the following summer. The best showing barrels from these lots were selected for a small and special blend called “Jardine”. We believe that this blend best reflects the terroir of Paso Robles and the 2001 vintage. This selection aged for an additional four months in 60% new thinstaved French oak barrels before being filtered gently and bottled.
Enjoy now through 2008.
