Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) Winemaker Notes from Rob Lawson: The 2005 growing season was long and cool with a big crop.

Patience, crop management and vine management were critical to this vintage in order to allow flavors to develop before picking. We waited and it paid off.

On the palate the wine leads into a balanced mouth feel of ripe blackberries with deep dark chocolate and coffee in the mid-palate, to a long and lingering finish of toffee and cherries. Well balanced with great weight and structure. Will cellar well. (hide)

    Better balanced is the impressive 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by plenty of cregrave;me de cassis, charcoal, roasted herb, and licorice notes. Medium to full-bodied and ripe with elegance, substance, and well-integrated tannins, it should drink well for 15ndash;20 years.
