BOLD Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2021
Hand-harvested at night. Upon entering the winery, the grapes are hand-sorted and then destemmed. For the Cabernet Sauvignon, a 6-day cold soak is followed by a native yeast fermentation in stainless steel. The Malbec and Petit Verdot came off the vine on the same day and we decided on a native co-ferment path.
Post-fermentation, several of the lots were allowed a 30 to 45-day extended maceration while undergoing malo, refining the tannins. After aging for 15 months in mostly neutral barriques, the wines were racked and blended, and then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
