Winemaker Notes
Our 2007 vintage of The Discussion is the product of one of the finest growing seasons in memory. As with many of the greatest wines in the 35-year history of Duckhorn Vineyards, this vintage of The Discussion celebrates the timeless union of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to achieve a wine that is rich, complex and elegantly harmonious. Refined aromas of mulberry, hazelnut, leather, cedar, tobacco and sweet spices give way to deep rich flavors of blueberry, black plum, cassis, clove and chocolate. Given time to breathe, these flavors evolve in the glass gaining additional depth and complexity, while developing warm, earthy tones and hints of toasted coconut.
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.
