Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage marks the post-phylloxera evolution of Kara's Vineyard. With higher proportions of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine is a complex, Bordeaux- style wine. It shows multiple layers of cinnamon spice, cherry and plum, some chocolate, and the sweet scent of cedar. Moderate tannins are soft and elegant, and the black cherry fruit typical of Kara's Vineyard lingers long on the palate. Elegant and well balanced. Bottled unfiltered.
My Notes:

About Robert Pecota Winery:

Robert Pecota founded the winery in 1978 after a career in San Francisco as a coffee roaster and tea packer. Moving from the intense aromas of coffee to the perfumes of fine wine was a natural transition. The vineyards and winery are at the northernmost end of the Napa Valley, tucked at the foot of Mount St. Helena at 500 feet elevation. The rocky soils and climate are best suited to the culture of late-maturing varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Muscat Canelli. With every new vintage, the Sauvignon Blanc label changes to showcase the art of a different artist, producing a wine pleasing to the eye as well as the other senses. Each of the principal varietals is dedicated to one of Robert's children: Kara, Steven and Andrea.
