Husch 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
Husch Cabernet Sauvignon grows in the warm, inland Ukiah Valley near the Russian River. The cooling ocean fog is less common than in the Anderson Valley and the grapes ripen beautifully. We select gravelly and hillside soils for Cabernet; the vines struggle in these conditions resulting in low yields of grapes with exceptional flavor. The grapes were hand-picked, destemmed, and fermented in small batches. Upon completion of the fermentation the grapes were pressed and barreled in French and American oak, where they maturated for 16 months. The wine was then blended to perfection and bottled with love.
