Chimney Rock Ganymede Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2005 1.5L
Located along the northern edge of our estate, the Ganymede Vineyard annually consistently offers the finest traits of both hillside and benchland fruit. This vineyard takes its name from the legendary mortal who, in Greek mythology, served as cup-bearer to the gods. In similar fashion, this vineyard annually satisfies even the most challenging palates, deftly walking the finest of lines between lush fruit, robust structure and remarkable aging potential.
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.
