To create our classic California Cabernet Sauvignon, we chose fruit influenced by the warmer weather of Lake and Santa Barbara Counties that give the wine its fruit forward characteristics, while the cooler climate of Monterey lends balance and acidity. It is a powerful wine that is deep, dense, and ripe with opulent flavors of black cherry, plum, and a hint of earthiness.
Our premier vineyards Lake County provide the complex fruit that
makes the 2009 Main Street Winery Cabernet Sauvignon. The warmer weather of Lake County and the unique microclimate
and soil give the wine it’s rich and fruit-forward characteristics. Lake County is located in the northern region of the North Coast winemaking area. It is bordered by the Mayacamas Mountains and the Mendocino National Forest.
The 2009 vintage was fermented using the Délestage method, enhancing the color and flavor
of the wine. After a 10-day maceration, the wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak. The French oak aided in integration of the wine characteristics and imparted elegant coffee and caramel flavors while the American oak added vanillin and toasted aromas to the wine.
Our 2009 vintage produced a spectacular wine that is rich and supple with aromas of plum, red licorice, cedar and wild berry. The beautiful aromas lead to a balanced and full-bodied palate and a soft, lingering finish.
