Winemaker's Notes

Our Cabernet grapes are grown in red soils (terrior) on the Eastern slopes of Bradford Mountain overlooking Dry Creek Valley and consistently show the characteristics of a "serious Cab". The 99 vintage was aged for 18 months (Note our label says 14 months. We decided to keep the wine in barrels for four months longer after the labels were printed.) in French oak barrels (30% new). Our Cab has the aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, cassis and plum with spicy, cedar and clove overtones. The concentration and ample tannic structure should allow for 8 to 10 years of bottle aging. Red meat dishes are the company of choice for the 99 Cabernet. Try it with steak, prime rib, or a barbecued tri-tip.
