The date has been set! We will be bottling our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this Wednesday. The mobile bottler will be coming in and working with us to get the one single barrel of Cabernet into the approximately 276 bottles. We are very happy with flavors and structure of the Cabernet. This vintage should really be a crowd pleaser. To make this even more special, we have put together some really nice packaging for this vintage. Besides for great wine, we have ordered a larger, more robust bottle, special corks that are longer and include the vintage and AVA designate, and a modified label that has embossing and a spot varnish. You may also catch that we have increased the size of our Alma Sol logo on the front label. So, keep you eye out for more information on the actual bottling and the release information.
Bottling was a success! We bottled the 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this past week. Although it is very tight and far too young to drink, we think we have a winner here. Please visit our BLOG PAGE to see a full posting and video of the bottling process.
