far mountain fission cabernet sauv 2019
Fission is a pure mountain wine, with a dark depth of fruit chiseled by the cool elevation of its two vineyard sites. A wine of texture, with the intensity and sappy concentration we associate with old vines, it builds into powerful tannins that remain refined, almost cloaked by the seductiveness of the fruit and the gently building structure. The name Fission was ultimately chosen to reference the textural and mineral characteristics that the unique volcanic soil brings to this wine.
From the first tastings the character of the vineyard appeared: a beautiful and intense ripeness of black fruits, with a seamless, soft and silky flow through the mid-palate. There is not just fruit, but obvious earthy and mineral characteristics. And it is a wine of texture, with a sappy concentration that we identify with old vines. A build into powerful tannins that remain refined, almost cloaked by the seductiveness of the fruit and the gently building structure. The name Fission was ultimately chosen to reference the textural and mineral characteristics we believe the volcanic soils bring to the wine.

"From the Alta Vista Vineyard, this impressive red is earthy in cedar, pencil shaving and dried herb. A violet note highlights the elegant palate, which is restrained in oak and integrated in tannin. The fruit is savory in character, with lasting focus on the finish."
