Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) This is it - the release we’ve all been waiting for – our big estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the exciting and age-worthy 2007 vintage. With ample structure, blue-black fruit and great aging potential, this phenomenal wine is reminiscent of past vintages of our Reserve Cabernet. The nose expresses gorgeous flavors of cassis, black raspberry compote, cocoa and blueberry.

With ample structure, blue-black fruit and great aging potential, this phenomenal wine is reminiscent of past vintages of our Reserve Cabernet. The nose expresses gorgeous flavors of cassis, black raspberry compote, cocoa and blueberry. The mouth is firm yet round, with intense flavors that evolve in the glass and balance the wine’s structure. The final blend is composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot from our Wind Whistle and Callie’s vineyard blocks, and 6% Petit Verdot. The wine was blended and bottled in July 2009, and has been bottle aged for four months. (hide)

Full in feel without the least resort towards heaviness, the wine tastes of mouthfilling, lengthy richness layered over intense yet youthful fruit.
