VINEYARD Prime Livermore Valley, Napa Valley and Arroyo Seco Estate
vineyards were selected for the Nth Degree program because of their consistent
production of exceptional fruit. The vineyards were “ultra-farmed”; every vine
receives at least fifteen passes by hand - to pruning, leaf pulling, removing
shoots, and thinning clusters, in an effort to ensure that the grape clusters
remaining at harvest are of the highest quality. The grapes were harvested in the
early morning into half ton bins and handpicked, sorted, and crushed into small
stainless steel fermenters.
WINEMAKING 30% of the wine was fermented in 1.5 ton bins and punched
down by hand twice daily. The other 70% was fermented in small upright
stainless steel tanks pumped over twice daily.
AGING The wine was aged for 22 months in French, American, Eastern
European, and neutral oak barrels.
DESCRIPTION Our 2010 vintage offers mouth-filling flavors and bold
tannins characteristic of great California Cabernets. It delights with flavors of
ripe black cherry, cassis, black tea, coffee and cocoa, and has a rich, wellbalanced finish.
HISTORY Founded more than 125 years ago, Wente Vineyards is the
country's oldest continuously operated family-owned winery. Owned and
managed today by the Fourth and Fifth Generations of the Wente family, the
winery draws from nearly 3,000 acres of estate vineyards in the Livermore
