Winemaker Notes
A seamless blend of grapes from the most distinct and coveted lots in our Estate portfolio, this complex, elegant wine is crafted to accentuate grace and harmony, as opposed to overt power, and offers a broad, lush mid-palate, silky tannins, focused fruit and a long, lingering finish. From its nuanced aromatics of black cherry, dark chocolate, orange peel, cedar and cinnamon to its rich and sophisticated flavors of raspberry truffles, cassis, blackberry, olive and herbs, this wine sets a new benchmark for Duckhorn Vineyards winemaking.
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.
