Winemaker's Notes

The Vintage This maiden release of Bommarito Cabernet Sauvignon is the culmination of winemaking expertise and the stellar growing season of 2000 in the Napa Valley. This wine is not a ‘vineyard designated' wine; it is a stand-alone brand. The 2000 Bommarito Cabernet Sauvignon is presented by Whitehall Lane Winery in St. Helena and is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from a select number of Napa Valley vineyards.

Winemaking The summer of 2000 was ideal with warm days developing the grape flavors and ripening the fruit. The weather was perfect from bud break in May through the summer season. The Cabernet grapes were harvested at full maturity in October 2000 from vineyards in Rutherford, St. Helena and Napa. There is also 20% Merlot from Rutherford blended into this wine that was aged in American oak barrels for 14 months. This oak aging enhanced the fruit flavors and added length to the smooth finish. The Merlot increases the plush mid-palate of this wine.

Bommarito is an almost forgotten historic name in the Napa Valley. Dominic Bommarito, who was born in Sicily in 1889, immigrated to the United States in 1903 and moved to his Rutherford estate in 1929. He was a founding member of the Napa Valley Co-Op at Greystone and tended to his Rutherford vineyard until his death in 1963.

Tasting Notes This wine was made to be enjoyed young. It is splendid with aromas of spicy, perfumed blackberry and oak. On the palate it shows flavors of sweet cherry, blackberry and vanilla. It has a pleasing soft finish.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
