Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon experienced an extended hang time and precise watering schedule to maintain proper grape ripeness. The clusters were loose with small berries while the fruit was well-developed and full of varietal flavors during harvest. The summer was mild with the warm days and cool nights typically associated with Santa Barbara County. The fruit developed slowly and ripened fully. Although the Cabernet Sauvignon harvest lasted three full weeks, 90 percent of the fruit came in during the last week of September. This indicated uniformity of ripeness throughout the entire vineyard.

This is an elegant and soft-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of blackberry, cedar and eucalyptus emerge on the nose to create a wonderful symphony of black fruit and velvety tannins on the palate. This wine is drinkable now, but will mature well and increase in complexity over time.
