Winemaker Corey Beck Notes
The 2007 vintage got underway earlier than most years as a result of a premature bud break caused by the warm, late winter. Then, the season lasted longer than normal because of prolonged moderate temperatures. These conditions are ideal for creating physiologically perfect fruit, which is why winemakers have declared this one of the best vintages of the decade. Endowed with great concentration, a seductive texture, and sweet fruit impressions, this wine also boasts provocative notes of toasty vanilla imparted by French oak barrel aging.
