BackgroundIn the mountains above Glen Ellen, 2008 was a warmer, riper vintage than our 2007 in Glen Ellen. This resulted in more mature wines with rounder, softer tannic structures. This year’s Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley reflects this. Only 500 cases were produced in 2008, one of our smallest Cabernet releases ever. Only the best Cabernet blocks, including harvests from both the red, basalt and the white, rhyolite soils were selected. The resulting Cabernet continues to display Audelssa’s characteristic drinkability without sacrificing ageability. As always, cherry and mocha notes will register on the palate. French oak barrels have helped our naturally milder tannins stay in the background.
