North Coast, California
The North Coast AVA spans six winegrowing counties—including Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino—all influenced to a degree by the Pacific Ocean and offering a wide range of microclimates. For this release, the majority of Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, blending rich fruit from the valley floor with the intense color and flavor of high-elevation fruit.
“Alexander Valley fruit provides the backbone for this expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. To fully extract color and tannins, the juice was left in contact with the skins for an extended maceration period, drawing layers of aroma and flavors from the fruit while giving this wine its elegant depth and body across the palate.” — Winemaker Heidi Bridenhagen
Persistent dark fruit; Undertones of brown sugar, cedar and tobacco. Expressive black cherry, blackberry, plum, blueberry and licorice; Firm tannin entry opens to a broad mid-palate
The wine was stainless steel fermented on skins, with daily maceration to extract color and tannin. It underwent 100% malolactic fermentation before being aged in a combination of French and American oak, a mix of new and used.
Dough is the first ever wine collaboration for the James Beard Foundation. The winemaker is Heidi Bridenhagen, who has received over 200 90-point scores at MacRostie Winery.
