Winemaker's Notes

The Gallo family farms seven benchland vineyards in the Sonoma County appellations of Sonoma Coast, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Russian River Valley. Selected vineyard sites within our vineyard portfolio produce the grapes for all E & J Gallo Northern Sonoma Estate Bottled wines. Only the "best of the best" fruit from each vineyard is ever considered for possible inclusion in these, our finest cuvées. After an intense selection process in both the vineyards and winery, the final blend for our 1997 Estate Bottled Cabernet was 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Stefani Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County. This powerful wine displays pure flavors of black fruit and cassis, framed by the rich vanilla and toast flavors from over two years aging in French oak barrels.
