Quilt 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5 Liter Magnum) - Red Wine

Red Wine by Quilt from Napa Valley, California. For Napa Valley Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, the winemaking process started by picking fruit at optimum physiological maturity; lignified seeds and canes, a slight dimpling of the berries (dehydration) and once in the cellar, we kept wine lots separated by individual vineyard. The wine went from cold soak to extended maceration for up to 60 days in some cases, and we re-evaluated the progress of each lot before movinextended maceration for up to 60 days in some cases, and we re-evaluated the progress of each lot before moving the wine to classic Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels (70% new oak, 30% seasoned) where it underwent malolactic fermentation, and was racked every 4 to 6 months until blending 20 months later. Deep, dark ruby with a hint of brick red around the edges. Striking aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry jam, toasted oak and hazelnut with hints of red berry fruit, baking spices and vanilla. Broad and mouth-filling with a satisfying mix of flavors ranging from rich molasses, stewed rhubarb, tobacco and nutmeg that integrate into a long satisfying finish complemented by balanced acidity, and smooth, velvety tannins. Pair with grilled rib eye steak with a pepper sauce; lamb chops with balsamic reduction; or a charcuterie platter with smoked duck breast, dry-cured pork sausage, figs, pecans and sliced apple. read more
