Certified organic from rocky, alluvial soils. Fermented in open top stainless steel. Three day cold soak, native yeast fermentation and a 21 day maceration. Aged 22 months in neutral oak barrels. The tiny Severson Vineyard is one of the few Valley floor vineyards Phil Coturri farms. In fact, there are a few exceptional Cabernet vineyards in this part of the valley where the deep lush soils typical of this fertile area give way to a rocky, gravely alluvial fan, what Phil calls Sonoma�s Left Bank. The vineyard is located in the southwest end of the valley, an area without protection from the Sonoma or Mayacamas mountain ranges known for cool, windy nights but long, hot Summer days that allow the grapes to ripen.
