Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) vintage gave us near perfect growing conditions which led to an early harvest. Spring conditions were warm and dry, which led to an early bud break and very even set. Aside from one hot spell at the end of June, temperatures remained moderate throughout the spring and summer. With only eight inches of rain from January through June, the vines had less green growth and an earlier turn to fruit development. Early October saw a major north wind event, bringing dry air off the arid northern California interior down across the coastal areas. Humidity during October 3–7 was very low, single digits, with strong winds buffeting all parts of Napa. Thirsty vineyards prompted harvest to accelerate even more than usual. In seven days, we brought in about 24% of our fruit. Harvest of our hillside fruit on Mount Veeder began September 14 and ended October 19, well ahead of our usual schedule. As harvest progressed, we became more and more aware that the color and intensity of Bordeaux reds would lead to a truly phenomenal vintage.

    always a solid choice. The 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon weaves warm aromas of cassis and tobacco into a bright canvas of raspberry, plum, and currant notes. On the palate, flavors of black cherry and boysenberry meet hints of vanilla, bay, and mocha beneath a generous structure of round, mouth-filling tannins. This big, brambly wine with bold mountain character is richly expressed with layers evolving through the full, lingering finish.
