The 2018 has selected fruit from Lodi, blended with Petite Sirah grapes to enhance the wine's color and structure. The grapes were cold soaked to encourage extraction of color and tannin from the fruit, fermented at warm temperatures, then aged on oak until Cabernet’s naturally firm tannins were softened and the wine structure was balanced. The finished wine has a round, plush mouthfeel and signature bold flavor.
Big and bold in style, Carnivor Cabernet offers intense, dark fruit aromas and deep, inky color. A plush, velvety mouthfeel frames rich flavors of dark berries, coffee, mocha and toasted oak, all backed by a distinctive smoothness and a lingering, silky finish.
