Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Patzimaro Vineyard Sub-appellation: St. Helena
Winemaker Notes
This wine begins with aromas of black Doris plum, raspberry, cassis and cola, before revealing a broad, soft entry and concentrated elements of black currant, ripe strawberries, French toast, olives and earth. To add even more complexity, as well as minerality and mid-palate structure, the final blend incorporates Cabernet Franc.
Production
The 2006 growing season was marked by a very mild summer with a mid-July heat spike that accelerated ripening. Mild temperatures continued throughout the fall allowing for a moderately paced harvest. The long growing season brought complex and intense flavor and aroma development.
