Winemaker Notes
For Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, the winemaking process started by picking fruit at precisely the right moment. Often this meant waiting until ripeness–determined both by testing sugar levels as well as by assessing other aspects of phenological readiness–had reached an ideal point. Once in the cellar, we kept lots separated by vineyard. While the wine underwent extended maceration, we re-evaluated the progress of each lot before moving the wine to small French oak barrels (70% new oak, 30% seasoned) where it underwent a secondary fermentation. Our final blend (100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon) came about after numerous blind tastings.
Tasting Notes
Deep, dark ruby red
A complex and bold assemblage of dark currant, chocolate hazelnut cream, coffee beans, dark and dense fruits, vanilla, red plum, baking spices and wild berry, along with hints of strawberry, wild field herbs, tobacco and roasted meats.

Bold and intense, with blackberry cobbler, crème de cassis, toasted hazelnut, chocolate, toffee and strawberry judiciously balanced with dark and wild berry fruits, licorice, cardamom seeds and baked rhubarb pie. A full-bodied wine with layers of complexity, concentrated black fruit and excellent balance.  The wine’s breadth and structure is complemented by a supple, velvety mouthfeel, with the wine coating the mouth with satisfying tannins.  The finish is long and satisfying.
