Winemaking Notes: Washington’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon sites provided fruit for the 2016 Dead Horse. The mature sites of Ciel du Cheval, Klipsun and Red Willow provide texture, nuance and character. Younger sites like our custom plantings at Quintessence add purity, vitality and structure to our flagship program. The warm 2016 vintage was similar to the 2015 vintage in that it allowed us to harvest all of our cabernet sauvignon and merlot in the month of September. The wine was fermented in a combination of 1.5, 2 and 5 ton open top fermenters for 7-10 days. Every effort is made to treat the wine as gently as possible. The must is never put through pumps and gentle punch downs occur twice per day. The wine is lightly pressed to barrel, where it finishes primary and malolactic fermentation and is aged for 21 months in 74% new French oak. The wine was racked twice prior to being bottled.
