A cabernet pump-over takes place at Covert Estate in the Coombsville AVA in Napa Valley. The French term is reassembly, which makes the process of pumping fresh juice from the bottom of the tank onto the layer of skins and pulp floating on top of the tank glamorous. Pumping over introduces some oxygen into the wine, while allowing carbon dioxide to escape, while helping to extract important compounds of color, flavor and aroma from the skin of the grapes.
