Winemaker's Notes:

The thirty acre Crazy Creek Vineyard lies just east of the town of Geyserville in the renowned Alexander Valley wine region. Its old, low vigor vines consistently produce cabernet sauvignon with more power and depth than typically found in the appellation. Stylistically, Nick strives for full body and power in the mouth with wood behind the fruit. Few single vineyard cabernet sauvignons are offered at such a reasonable price. Full-bodied.

Tasting note: Elegant and round with sweet blackberry and plum flavors framed in spicy oak. The 2007 vintage shows more power than the 2006 yet still has soft tannins and a broad middle palate.

My Notes:

About Goldschmidt Vineyard:

Yolyn and Nick Goldschmidt are owner/vintners, and Nick is the winemaker. The winery offices are located in Healdsburg. Both originally from New Zealand, Yolyn and Nick have spent time living and working in the wine areas of New Zealand, Australia and South America.

Their focus is Cabernet Sauvignon from two prestigous vineyards in Northern California — Vyborny Vineyard, located on the northeastern slope in the Alexander Valley, and Game Ranch, located on old river bottom on the eastern bench of the Silverado Trail. Both showcase the optimum silhouettes of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley and Napa Valley.
