Tasting Notes:
Classic in structure and finesse, Auspicion Cabernet highlights lush red and black berry fruit that build with a touch of chocolate, toffee and vanilla on a silky, lingering finish.

Aging: The wine is racked into used French oak barrels and ages for 1012 months before bottling.

Winemaking: Gently-harvested throughout September as each vineyard site reaches optimal ripeness. Freshly harvested grapes are gently pressed and destemmed before transfer to stainless steel tanks. A long, warm maceration ensues over the course of the next 3-4 days for maximum color and flavor extraction. Occasional punching down of the cap increases concentration and texture.

Food Pairing : Enjoy with pasta, chicken, grilled meats and a variety of cheeses.
