Tasting Notes

Beautiful, dark fruit aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, vanilla, cedar, black currant, toffee and even a hint of lavender and violets appear in this seductive wine. The first sip of this wine brought to mind the sense of luxury. Lush, full, round, elegant -- with a subversively long finish, it has in body as much to offer as the enigmatic aromas.

Vineyard Notes

Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. With 28 distinctive vineyard blocks showing an array of different aspects, soil types, clones and rootstocks, our vineyard provides a diversity of flavors that are artfully blended to capture the holistic representation of our estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

Production Notes

The 2005 vintage was one of the latest harvests we’ve had. A very cool, wet spring set the stage for late bud break and a cascade of subsequent delays. The great advantage of 2005 was the slow ripening we experienced, allowing flavor maturity without sky-high sugars. The end result of the vintage was nice yields with high-quality, concentration and color.
