patrickmmag, bot+2 splits. Drink thru 2014 <br/><br/>May 1, 2008 Release.<br/>94 points - Gold Medal Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships 2008<br/> <br/>Lake William is a Cabernet Sauvignon blend named after the lake which borders and cools the estate vineyards that contribute to the wines final blend. Each vintage's varietal composition varies dependent on the blending of our winemaker, Dimitri Tchelistcheff. The 2003 vintage of Lake William combines Cabernet Sauvignon 39%, Cabernet Franc 34%, Merlot 22%, Petit Verdot 3% and Malbec 2%. Twenty months of barrel aging in 100% new French Nevers oak adds a note of toasty vanilla to the rich red currant aroma and elegant berry flavors of this wine. Lake William has a very charming freshness that makes it ideal for drinking as a young wine. For those who choose to cellar this wine, it will continue to develop beautifully through 2014.
