Winemaker's Notes

Wine Style
Vendimia, which means 'harvest' or 'vintage' in Spanish, is the proprietary name for this Bordeaux-style blend. Vendimia is a subtle, sophisticated wine that has elegance and finesse. Each varietal was aged separately in small oak barrels before being masterfully blended to showcase the best attributes of each of the grape types.

Flavor Profile
The 1999 Vendimia has cherry and cassis aromas and flavors from the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot, along with a nice level of mint from the Cabernet Franc. The wine is rounded out with well-integrated vanilla and chocolate flavors. The tannins, which are greatly aided by the small percentage of Petite Verdot, are smooth and, combined with the acid, will allow the wine to age well for many years.

Varietals
77% Cabernet Sauvignon
13% Merlot
5% Cabernet Franc
5% Petite Verdot

Aging
24 months in 60-gallon French oak barrels.

Our 92-acre estate vineyard was first planted in 1884, and is sustainably farmed and hand-harvested. Planted are 29 acres of clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon; 10 acres of clone 1 Merlot; 4.7 acres of clone 2 Petite Verdot; and 2.5 acres of clone 1 Cabernet Franc selected for this blend.
