When we received the fruit at the winery, the sun was rising over the Eastern hills of Oakville, the grapes cleanly bundled in their bins, and it was time to get to work. We destemmed the grapes directly to small open-top bins and slowly let the heat from the afternoon sun kick off the fermentation. After guiding the fruit through a three-week fermentation, we drained the free run wine into new French oak barrels and lightly pressed the skins into once-used French oak barrels. Then it was time to be patient, as this wine was structured, youthful, and needed time to mature.
After nearly three years in barrel, the wine was ready to go to bottle. The tannins softened, the fruit evolved, and we’ve never been more excited about a Cabernet Sauvignon for Hibou. The nose is a bowl of dark berry fruits, cocoas nibs, clove, cassis, vanilla bean, and licorice. The fruit on the palate is supported with supple tannins and just enough acidity to lift this otherwise menacingly rich wine.
