We were able to get this library offering for you from longtime regarded vintner & winemaker Ric Forman’s library. All the fruit for this Cabernet comes from his vineyard in the eastern St. Helena hillside. Situated on a steep, southwest facing slope in the Vaca Mountains, this is a true example of "mountain Cabernet" if there ever was one. Viticulture, the driving force for quality is taken to extremes without compromise. In the winery, to fully capture and highlight the terroir, the most advanced equipment available today, which has been designed for small, quality wine production, has been chosen. Hand harvested fruit is processed within 30 minutes of picking. Hand sorted, the fruit is gently de-stemmed in a French Delta de-stemmer and transported, intact, to small 2-4 ton temperature controlled stainless steel fermentors. Fermentation and maceration lasts for 3-4 weeks. “Ric Forman's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is all class. The 2016 won't be ready to drink for at least another year, but it is already super attractive, and also very typical of Ric Forman's style. Lavender, spice, and red cherry run through this wine made in a style that is all class and finesse.”
