At Dark Horse Wine, we wholeheartedly believe that fortune favors the bold. Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price.
The grapes for our Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at optimum ripeness led to easy and early extraction of rich color and velvety tannins in the fermenters. Warmer fermentations (88F - 92F) resulted in more intense flavors and fruit forward aromatics. Post fermentation, the wines are aged to add complexity and balance to the wines.
We selected the grapes for our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from premier California vineyards. Winemaker Beth Liston visited these vineyards daily to determine which blocks would make it to the final blend. California experienced its third year of dry and warm weather, making canopy management key to allow just the right amount of sunlight on the berries. An early bud break was followed by an early harvest, producing wines of outstanding flavor and acidity in the glass.
