Grapes for our Five Sisters Blend Cabernet Sauvignon were cool fermented in temperature-controlled, open-topped fermentation tanks and gently punched down by hand. Th­is time-consuming, low-impact processing optimizes fruit extraction and limits harsh tannins. ­The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 2% Petite Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. All of the components of this wine were fermented and barrel-aged separately for 20 months in French oak barrels, then combined to create our Five Sisters Blend.
