The wine: bold, smooth and refined
Carnivor 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Big and bold in style, Carnivor Cabernet offers intense, dark fruit aromas and deep, inky color. A plush, velvety mouthfeel frames rich flavors of dark berries, coffee, mocha and toasted oak, all backed by a distinctive smoothness and a lingering, silky finish.
We selected a large portion of the fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon from premier vineyards in Lodi, a leading California winegrowing region for over 150 years. Lodi offers ideal conditions for growing intensely ripe grapes with great natural acidity and fruit-forward characteristics. Following a brief cold soak to encourage extraction of color and tannin from the fruit, the must was fermented at 88-92°F for four to six days. The wine was then aged on oak until Cabernet’s naturally firm tannins were softened and the wine structure was balanced. We added a small amount of the boldest Petite Sirah grapes with the deepest color to enhance the wine’s color and structure. The finished wine has a round, plush mouthfeel and signature bold flavor.
