Winemaker Jeremy Leffert Notes
Our 2008 "The Point" is a unique and powerful expression of Bordeaux varieties (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 8% Petite Sirah). The lovely aromatics are driven by cassis and raspberry, with beautiful subtleties of leather, herbs du Provence, and balanced toasty French oak. Immediately, refreshing front end acidity attack the palate and move to flavors of cherry and chocolate. This transitions to a fine grained lengthy finish composed of creamy blueberry, from the Petite Sirah, a hint of butterscotch, with a dolop of blackberry jam. "The Point" is constructed each year with a small selection of our best individual barrels. We taste each barrel within each lot of our Bordeaux varieties. On ...more... ly a select few will make the cut into this program. TA: .60 g/100 mL pH: 3.81
PH | 805.927.4100
