Alcohol 13.1% by volume

Rear panel text:
This wine was produced entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes harvested from our vineyard 6 miles north of Prosser, Washington, beginning October 16, 1978. Must analysis was 23.8 Brix, 1.04G/100ml total acid, and pH 3.31. A warm fermentation was carried out using "Pasteur Red" yeast with pressing done after 10 days. on the skins. The wine was then racked 50 gallon American Oak barrels for aging and the completion of "malo-lactic" fermentation. Since this wine has not been fined, it may deposit some sediment in time and should be decanted before serving. We expect the wine to benefit from additional bottle aging and to begin maturing in 1987-90. We welcome visitors to our winery, which is located at State Hwy. 12 and Sheridan Ave., Prosser, WA. Since we are often in the vineyards, a call to (509) 786-2163 would insure someone being there to meet you.
