Winemaker Janice Schmidt Notes
GOLD MEDAL – 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Tasting Notes Our Cabernet Bordeaux Blend embraces all the warmth and complexity that is the heritage of the long, cool growing season that was 2009. The depth of color, aroma and flavor is amazing with an over-the-top fruitiness that is paired with a rich and long-lasting mouthfeel. A deeply rewarding marriage of Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Production Notes This blend captures the essence of four Cabernet clones (two American and two French) as well as French clones of Malbec and Petit Verdot. While we could field blend these winegrapes, we go through the more laborious process of fermenting each varietal and each clone separately. This allows us to not only ens ...more... ure that each clonal selection shines after fermentation, but also allows us to choose the best varietals and clones for eventual inclusion in the blend. As bottling approaches, we spend many months playing with multiple iterations of blend possibilities, finally narrowing down our favorites until a clear winner emerges. We spend much time micro-managing these blends as they are so important to the taste of the wine. Enjoy!
