Winemaker Kevin Morrisey Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon is synonymous with the Napa Valley in general and Stags Leap District in particular. In the Estate vineyards, we take full advantage of this ideal location, planting Cabernet vines in deep, well-drained loamy volcanic soils. The 2006 growing season began with a rainy and cool spring, which slightly delayed bud break. Warm summer months kept harvest on track by gradually advancing fruit maturity, and the moderate temperatures continued into harvest allowing the Cabernet to achieve ripeness of flavor and tannin without compromising natural acidity. Harvest progressed perfectly, and aroma, tannin, and flavor profile for this vintage is truly exceptional.
