||Blended after 6 months in barrel. Aged a total of 18 months in French oak, 50% new
||Fermented separately in stainless steel tanks.
Juicy and mouth filling with a plush mid-palate and smooth finish. The muscular structure is well integrated with judicious use of new French oak. There is great ageing potential here but drinks beautifully right now.
GALAXY combines the winemaking expertise behind Terlato Family Vineyards with the competitive camaraderie amongst winemakers Marisa Taylor Huffaker, Bryan Parker and Elizabeth Vianna. Each brings their most powerful and concentrated wine to the blending table and vies for top billing in the blend. Marissa brings her lush and sensual Merlot from Napa Valley, Bryan brings his aromatic and ageworthy Syrah from Dry Creek Valley, and Elizabeth contributes her elegant and structured Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap District
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.
