FELINO Cabernet Sauvignon Varietal Composition 86% cabernet sauvignon 14% merlot, petit verdot, malbec & syrah Vintage 2007 Harvest April 7-14; hand-harvested Appellation Mendoza, Argentina Vineyards in Agrelo, Perdriel, Lunlunta and Tunuyan Climate Semi-desert; 2,500 feet average altitude Growing Season A mild winter with minimal frost was followed by warm, consistent temperatures in spring that set a healthy, uniform crop. A long, moderate growing season followed, allowing fruit to ripen slowly and fully. Rains in mid-March necessitated the delay of harvest to give the vines time to reabsorb excess precipitation and re-concentrate flavors in the berries. Yield 3.1 to 3.7 tons/acre Primary Fermentation Fermented with selected and native yeasts in 8 to 15 ton closed-top stainless steel fermentors Maceration 3 to 4 day cold soak; 15 to 18 days total maceration Secondary Fermentation Native malolactic fermentation in barrel; 3 months to completion Barrel Aging 9 months in American and French oak barrels; 22% new Bottling March 2008 Tasting Notes Aromas of black currant and spice accompany a deep garnet color to introduce this stylish cabernet sauvignon. The generous palate offers perfectly ripened black fruits framed with bittersweet cocoa and hints of tobacco and earth. Fine, ripe tannins and subtle mineral notes grace a lengthy finish. Alcohol 14.2%
