Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon is the first release in a program designed to showcase single vineyard source wines from both the Alexander and Napa Valley appellation's. The goal is to create wines that highlight the distinct characters, benefits and attributes derived from these site specific harvests. Goldschmidt Vineyard Cabernets are crafted with the best possible resources to achieve exceptional richness, quality and balance—the hallmarks of world-class wines.

The Vyborny Vineyard An exclusive 5 acres of vineyard terraces on a small knoll in the heart of the California's famed Alexander Valley. Excellent soils and optimal cluster exposure in this unique vineyard produces elegant, full-bodied wines with supple tannins balanced with power and weight reminiscent of the great estates around the world.

Great vineyards are normally balanced, produce smaller than average size berries and produce vines that expose the cluster to the sun uniformly in each vintage. Our site is unique in that it allows for a very long hang time between flowering and harvest. It allows the vine to maximize flavor and tannin development leading to a very rich, and yet supple, wine. The 1999 vintage was classic in that we had a very long period of warm dry weather well into October, when the grapes were harvested.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

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.
