Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Cabernet Franc, 1.0% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Malbec.

Well-defined currants, blackberry, blueberry and cassis make for abundant fruit on the attack. Sturdy, complex tannins balance the acidity throughout. Notes of smoke, mocha, cedar and lots of rich oak round off the long, earthy, heady finish.

I bought this bottle at the local wine emporium for 32.99, mostly to blot out the memory of the night before, which I spent attempting to get drunk enough to appreciate Coppola's Director's Cut and had to pass out before any reward came. This was a little different. The nose is nice and grapey with no alcohol fumes to burst your capillaries on the first inhale. Top layer was grapey or cherryish but a little flat on complexity; mid-sip was still very fruity, and the finish was long with an interesting caramel pop at the very end. There is a type of high-end cabernet that almost feels like drinking some complex french broth; where one could almost taste beef or leeks in the moment between swallows so that drinking it on a cold night is almost as good as a meal. This wine *almost* makes it there and *almost* tastes french, with just a nanosecond of a memory of the perfume of Cote Du Rhone when it crosses your lips. All layers are balanced, fruity, but not sweet. I would not drink this on its own however, it just doesn't have the gravitas; there are layers in the vintage but none inside each layer. I would call this a 300 thread count sip. Also: I think the Malbec was a mistake. I don't think Malbec belongs in a cab; it turns a red flavor into a purple one. Entirely different and not particularly appreciated.

Back in 1974, Jess Jackson saw in the fine vineyards of California's cool coastal regions fruit with a variety of outstanding flavors. What if there was a way to produce from this abundance, a single outstanding cuvee that offered both quality and value? The result, first released in 1983, was Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay, a rich, round and flavorful wine, made with hand-crafted...

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. 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. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
