Selected from nine different clonal blocks in our Vista Verde Vineyard, the ripe fruit offers a wonderful perfumed nose of black cherries, rose petal and nutmeg. The bright cherry/strawberry nose, with a hint of truffle, spice, cardamom, toffee and fennel are classic to this vineyard site. Your mouth will water with flavors of wild cherries, pomegranates, sassafras, fennel and white truffles. I find that the balanced acidity helps to carry the rich and round tannins that follow through long into the finish.
—Winemaker Bob Cabral
Following a labor-intensive growing season due to early spring rains, a cool summer and mild fall weather extended the ripening season in 2005. This long, slow maturation period permitted flavors and color to develop to high levels, and the absence of weather threats or temperature extremes allowed fruit to be picked at optimum ripeness. The fruit quality was extremely high, contributing to balanced and elegant wines with concentrated flavors and intense color.
