Yoeman Vineyard
About the Vineyard:
Goldschmidt Yoeman Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a small mountain vineyard just east of the town of Geyserville. The vineyard slopes to the southeast and is comprised of well-draining glacial loam. Soft morning sun promotes slower grape maturation and longer “hang times” in this secluded micro-climate. Rarely do vineyard conditions afford a winemaker the opportunity to make a wine such as this.
Additional Winemaker Notes:

Using techniques learned over time, Nick Goldschmidt selected four barrels of wine from the 2010 vintage that he felt were exceptional. From a thin slice of an already exceptional vineyard, drained over a period of two days and aged twice in new barrels, the final result is a wine that exceeds the quality of the vintage. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new Taransaud Medium-Plus Allier for 24 months, then gravity racked into a second, new Taransaud barrel for an additional 19 months. The wine was then hand bottled directly from the barrels, unfined and unfiltered. Only 194 six-packs of this wine were produced.

Aging: 43 months in 100% new Allier Oak Tight-Grain

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair this Cabernet Sauvignon with a hearty meal, like an aged-gouda cheeseburger topped with crispy fried onions, medium-rare sirloin steak, portabello or porcini mushroom dishes and hard cheeses, such as aged cheddar or gouda.
