When their friends Shaunt & Diego of Les Lunes/Populis Wines offered them some of the Cabernet from one of the vineyards they farm in Carneros, they couldn't pass it up. The vineyard is organic and planted in the early 80's. This wine has a lot going on, you get the fruit and spice you'd expect from a Cabernet with the lift and freshness you get from a lot of their wines. Egomaniac is drinking great now, but it's built to age.
Vineyard: Millen Vineyard, is farmed by our friends Shaunt and Diego of Les Lunes/Populis Wines. The vineyard is a 40 year old organically farmed family vineyard. Neither synthetic herbicides nor insecticides are used and all sprays are timed in relation to the moon. Transitioning to dry-farming, the vineyard is watered minimally two to three times a year depending on vintage conditions. Composting and cover crops are used to increase the organic material, life and vitality of the soils. The hot days and cool nights as a result of close proximity to the bay give the wine classic Cabernet concentration while maintaining lower ABV and snappy acidity.
Method: The fruit was picked in late October and destemmed, receiving one pumpover per day during the three week fermentation. It saw 5 weeks of extended maceration after primary fermentation for 8 weeks of total maceration. The wine was raised in 500L barrels for 10 months, and then racked once to tank for blending 4 weeks before bottling. The finished wine was bottled unfined, unfiltered, with zero sulfur.
