Winemaker Notes

From the vineyard to the winery, Alamos Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening tempratures in Catenas high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang-time, preserving the fruits full spectrum of aromas and flavors. At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed (only free-run juice is used) and fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled. Two to four year old barrels are used to age the wine, which is only lightly fined.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
