Winemaker Andrew Schweiger Notes
2006 was a remarkable growing seaon. A long mild spring and summer (with occasional heat spikes followed by cooler days) gave the grapes plenty of time to soak in the sun and develop intense flavors and tanins typical of great mountain Cabernet. To help round out the wine, we continued our traditional extended barrel aging program; not to give the wine more oak or vanilla characters, but to give the wine more time in the micro-aerative environment of the barrel to enhance tannin polymerization. For our efforts, we have been rewarded with a rich, full-bodied Cabernet, deep in color. The nose of the wine is lively with essences of dark berries, plum, dark chocolate, and toasty oak. The sweet, supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense ...more... middle; followed by a pleasant, velvety, lingering finish.
