Hestan Vineyards 2015 Stephanie Cabernet Sauvignon


Santa Rosa Plum and Black cherry (almost like a cherry pie). Cassis and black currants. Sweet complex vanilla oak and dried sweet tobacco and brown spice (cinnamon/clove). This wine should be a crowd pleaser. Again this wine has a palate like no other. Complex, long and elegant with fine dry tannins that will help this wine age nicely.

Wine Enthusiast - 90 Points
"Thick in sturdy tannin and oak, this hugely concentrated red contains small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. French oak (40% new) cradled it for 28 months. Leather, tobacco and soy highlight a dusty texture of brooding black fruit."

Winemaker Notes

Winemaker Jeff Gaffner vinifies grape lots separately to retain individual block and varietal characters, but he also coferments some lots for added complexity and layers of flavor. Once in the cellar, the grapes are de-stemmed and cold soaked for 2-3 days in small fermenters, and then inoculated with a low rate of cultured yeast. Periodic punch downs and pump overs encourage softer extraction at lower alcohol levels. After pressing, the wines are sent to barrel to finish primary and secondary fermentation. Once finished, they are racked off the lees and returned to the same barrels for a total of 28 months aging.
