BackgroundThis is the wine that defines our work even as the San Andreas Fault defines our site. The 2007 is a wine of truly remarkable character in that it has a compact identity due to its balance, depth of fruit expression, and a potent focus: Like a laser with soul! And this potency is achieved with neither high alcohol nor intense extraction. It shows that true power derives from balance and focus, not might or sleight of hand tricks. Blended from twenty-six fermentation lots comprised of fruit of thirty-six farming blocks, it is the wine of the totality of this site in this great vintage.
DescriptionOverture of sour cherry, wild berries, plum, old cedar & caramel, leading to dried herbs, leather, cola, herbal notes & minerals with a creamy mahogany overlay. The palate is dry with layers of textures finishing with long, coated, persistent tannins that resonate in the throat for many minutes.
Natalie MacleanFleshy ripe cherry aromas with a satin smooth texture and a medium-bodied weight. Terrific acidity to accompany many dishes and good conversation. Food matches: planked or grilled salmon, roast chicken or turkey.
