About This Item

The Zenaida Estate Vineyard is located on the western edge of the Paso Robles AVA near the base of the Santa Lucia Mountains in the Templeton Gap District. We utilize sustainable agriculture practices to produce wines that are predominantly fruit forward and express our unique west side terroir. In mid-summer the vines are “green thinned”. Green clusters are cut from the vine, leaving just one cluster per shoot in order to concentrate the plants energy into fewer clusters and improving wine quality. The Cabernet Sauvignon estate fruit was hand harvested, de-stemmed, and allowed to cold soak 48 hours before fermenting in small 200- gallon open top lots. During the fermentation process the must was manually punched down twice daily and given specifically timed de le stage for approximately 30 days then gently pressed. The wine was then aged in 100% select fine grain French oak for 15 months. This wine exhibits a balance of rich black cherry and ripe plum, tempered with anise, juniper berry, cocoa and moderate but soft tannin.
