Winemaker's Notes

Varietal composition: 74% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

With perfect southwest exposure and rocky, well-drained soils, Rhinefarm Vineyard produces wines with varietal character and a silken mouthfeel, even in the young-vine fruit used in this blend.

The 2003 Mountain Cuvee is delightfully fragrant, with aromas of cedar and black spice. This inviting red has a supple mouthfeel and rich black plum and Bing cherry flavors backed by nuances of espresso and toast. The firmly structured finish is long and smooth, with lingering cocoa and cherry notes. Enjoyable now, it will continue to improve in the bottle over the next two to five years.
