Wine Profile
Vintage: 2009
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Appellation: Stags Leap District
Alcohol %: 14.50%
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: In 2009, we were blessed with another dry spring, and beautiful temperate weather throughout the growing season. The few late rains had little effect on our intensely flavored and elaborately ripe, yet balanced, fruit.
