Winemaker's Notes

Rick and Kathy Adams planted their 7.5-acre vineyard on an ancient, rock-strewn deposit left by the meandering Russian River, the defining geographic landmark in the Alexander Valley. The rocky soil stresses the vines into producing small clusters with tiny berries, resulting in concentrated flavors. California Bay Laurel trees at one corner of the vineyard and a stand of Eucalyptus trees on the opposing corner impart subtle minty flavors to the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

"The flavor profile of the 2004 Adams Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon tastes of ripe, dark berry fruit and black plums, with a smooth texture. A plush, rich and deep mouthfeel is structured by a seamless tannin framework that provides backbone. Aging for 20 months in 62% new French oak barrels contributes flavors of mocha, caramel and vanilla."
-Winemaker David Ready

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,...
