Winemaker Kirk Venge Notes
In 2004, we planted 5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon clone 337 and rootstalk 101-14. We planted the clone 337 to add depth and texture to our traditional more old world Bordeaux style. Kelly Maher and Kirk Venge assert that “the 337 serves to brighten the fruit profile in the mid palate resulting in a harmonious melange of fruit profiles.” We also planted a total of 1 acre consisting of both Cabernet Franc clone 327 Rootstalk 101-14 and Petit Verdot clone 400, rootstalk 101-14. The 2006 vintage was aged for 21 months in 100% French Oak barrels (Nadalie Tonnelerie, Demptos Bordeaux, Export, Gamba).
