Located on the western side of the Oakville appellation, Game Farm Vineyard lays on top of the old course of the Rector Creek. The soils are essentially 100% river rock. This incredibly rocky structure allows for a very free-draining environment for the vines to grow in. Because of this, the root systems have run deep in an attempt to find adequate water resources, and in turn, feeds complex minerals to the vines.

Varietals

Cabernet Sauvignon

The nose displays sweet red currants, maraschino cherry, blueberry, baking spices, and fresh-cut violets. On the palate, the wine teases the senses with rich boysenberry, ripe plum, roasted coffee, cedar, vanilla bean and a dusting of dark chocolate. The acid is balanced throughout with the fine tannin that ties the entre wine and its complexity together. 

More about the wine

The two clones from the vineyard were picked and made as separate lots. Fruit was de-stemmed and then cold soaked at 45F for 5 days. Natural ferment started after 5 days so they warmed the tanks up and added PN specific yeast. Fermentation lasted another 5 days, before they pressed the wine off skins.
