With fruit sourced from our estate vineyards, our Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is expressive of the Livermore Valley. The fruit comes from the valley floor and southern hills of Livermore Valley with its gravelly alluvial fans. Our soil and climate help to give us a Cabernet that is rich in flavor and appealing structure” - Karl D. Wente, Fifth Generation Winemaker
Since 1883, five generations of our family have handcrafted fine wines that express the very best of our vineyards and winemaking expertise. Our Estate Grown Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is named for our vineyards located along the southern hills of the Livermore Valley. The Wente family farms approximately 400 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards using the two clones originating from California wine pioneer Charles Wetmore’s Bordeaux cuttings in the 19th century. With Livermore Valley’s unique East-West orientation, well-drained rocky soils, and unique mesoclimates, the Southern Hills vineyards are located in the most desirable settings with exposures ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon of distinct character, depth and intensity.
The various components were fermented separately in upright stainless steel tanks and gently pumped over twice daily. This process of aeration helps to increase the extraction of all of the wonderful aromas and textures within the grape.
This wine was aged for 16 months in new and used French and Eastern European oak barrels as well as stainless steel tanks. Aging in stainless steel helps preserve fruit vibrancy in the wine.
