Fission Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019
This wine has not only deep and pure fruit, but rich savory and earth tones, and a finishing minerality that is almost saline. That precise and complex aftertaste, defined by far more than fruit flavors, is where you find truly great wines.
USA, California (Sonoma)
94pts. Wine Enthusiast; 93pts. James Suckling
Dry farmed but produces beautiful fruit at twice the age most vines in California. They adapt to the influences of weather, with their deep root systems (20-40 feet down) bringing layers of complexity to the fruit development.
Open top with minimal punchdowns and pumpovers, native yeasts carry out fermentation; never racked until blending before bottling.
Maturation Mode & Time:
27% new French Oak barrels, of these 73% Medium Toast and 27% Medium Plus Toast, 73% neutral French oak barrels (third, fourth, fifth and sixth use)
