Production Notes
Varietal Content 94% Merlot 6% Cabernet Sauvignon Cooperage 100% French Oak, Chateau-Style Barrels (60 gallons) Age of Barrels: 100% New
Winemaker Notes
The aromas are opulent and concentrated with layers of red cherry, red currant, black licorice, allspice, olives and beef bouillon. On the palate, the wine is supple and compelling, with the ripe tannins and seamlessly integrated oak complementing and adding structure to flavors of raspberry, rhubarb, cranberry, walnut and cedar.
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.
