|Two Jakes 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon|
The 2012 was harvested in early October in warm, fair weather which achieved early full ripeness. Fermented traditionally and aged in neutral cooperage for only 14 months to refine its dense tannins and lend subtle nuances of vanilla and espresso.
|2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (Two Jakes)|
Our vineyard on a peninsula jutting into the southeastern corner of Clear Lake is the site of the most extensive commercial Cabernet Sauvignon clonal library in the State of California. Its persistent sunny rays at the high altitude draw from each clone its unique aromatic signature, and the cooling “lake effect” prevents them from volatilizing, preserving a distinct clonal stamp on each. Different clones will develop aromas as diverse as grenadine, cassis, raspberry, carob, Asian spice and tar, with tannins and acidity equally varied.
