Winemakers Notes

I am extremely pleased to be working with this fruit again, in our first vintage since 2001. Aromas of wild blackberries, cassis, cola and truffles come bursting out. The concentrated flavors of wild berries, spice, cardamom and coffee expand throughout the palate. Round, brooding tannins are carried through nicely with a bit of acidity in the finish.
—Winemaker Bob Cabral

Harvest Notes

A hot spell in March followed by a warm spring influenced an unusually early bloom and budbreak. This precocious start, followed by a growing season of moderate temperatures, resulted in a very early harvest. Although we harvested the grapes two to three weeks earlier than normal, the long season provided ample time for the fruit to reach full maturity and develop extraordinary color and intense flavors. A cooling trend in mid-September offered the Chardonnay additional hang time prior to harvest.
