Winemaker Notes
From its signature elements of olive, earth, black truffle and thyme to its enticing layers of black currant, caramel and dark red fruit, this wine possesses a robust structure and a finish that seems to linger for an eternity. To add even more depth, complexity and compelling mid-palate structure, the final blend incorporates Cabernet Franc.
Production
The 2007 growing season began early and was unusually dry, with rainfall totals that were 50 percent below average. Cool spring weather continued into the summer with temperatures down by approximately 5 degrees from August through October. The cool, steady weather produced a long harvest spread out over 80 days. This relaxed pace allowed us to pick in multiple passes, ensuring ideal ripening and flavor development in the fruit.
