2012 Ashley's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon spent 18 months in small premium oak barrels concentrating the balanced fruit and tannin structure of these exceptional Central Valley wine grapes. The result is a well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that is equally great with or without any food pairing. Because of the extended barrel aging, this wine is aged perfectly now and should show small improvements over the next year as flavors and aromas mellow in the bottle. It will cellar well, but is not necessary for optimum enjoyment.
Ashley's Vineyard is a 2.5 acre vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon planted directly next to Engelmann Cellars winery in Fresno, CA. The vineyard was planted in the spring of 2000 about the time that my sister was pregnant with her first child Ashley. Since my sister and husband were living in our grandparent's house in front of the winery at the time, I felt it fitting to call the vineyard Ashley's Vineyard. These grapes are grown exclusively for use in Engelmann Cellars wines so that we can focus on quality instead of quantity in the vineyard. One good example of this is holding back water on the vineyard in the spring and early summer months to stress the vines. By stressing the vines we can produce about 6 tons of premium grapes per acre, instead of the 12 tons of moderate quality grapes that are usually sold to the large valley wineries.
