Wine Profile
Production Notes
2013 was a great season for growing Cabernet with long warm days and cool nights. When the month of October still offers warmth for ripening, we know we will get the hang time for an excellent vintage! Extended cold soaks lasting 5-7 days provided natural extraction from the grapes and allowed the native yeast populations to increase. We performed pumpovers twice daily with massive aeration early in fermentation. Once the fermentation slowed, the skins rested on the wine, keeping overall contact from 30-50 days. The wine was aged for 19 months in small French oak cooperage (32% new) and bottled in July 2015.
Winemaker Notes
“The red loam soils on the hills of the Kunde Estate provide a great foundation for growing stellar Cabernet. When we pick our vineyards at the end of October, we know that we maximize the hang time the fruit is given to express the terroir of the Sonoma Valley. This Estate Cabernet Sauvignon may be considered our house wine, but if this tastes like a house wine, I’d stay home any time! Best enjoyed with the family around your favorite summer barbeque grills; burgers to spare ribs, this one is versatile.”

While visiting Sonoma Valley on our 25th anniversary, we purchased a bottle of Kunde Cab at a local grocery store - the next day we purchased another! Went wonderfully with our brie, sausage and fruit dinner! Will make a point of visiting the winery on our next visit! Wish that we had it here locally.
