My Notes:

About Whispering Dove:

The partnership of Whispering Dove was literally formed one night while drinking and enjoying an insanely priced Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruity forward taste of this fine wine turned sour rapidly as we calculated how many hours of work we had to put in simply to afford that wine! This epiphany led us to investigate just exactly what it truly costs to produce an outstanding bottle of wine. What we learned astounded us. We learned that after a certain point, all ultra fine wines cost almost exactly the same to produce and that more often than not winemakers based their bottle price upon intangible items such as personality, marketing or worse yet-pure ego. That night Whispering Dove was hatched with our motto… “LET YOUR PALATE DECIDE” Whispering Dove winery was founded with the sole purpose of returning to the California wine enthusiast both quality and perspective. When purchasing a bottle of Whispering Dove, a wine drinker will be afforded the same advantages of an ultra premium California wine without the disadvantage of having to subsidize a wine producer’s extravagant lifestyle. Rather than pay for airplanes, estates, antiques & art, “Whispering Dove” drinkers will pay for the finest grapes, grown in the best micro climates and produced in collaboration with the hottest winemakers in California. Appellation: Napa Valley, California Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon utilizing stressed farming & low yield techniques with extended maceration for intensity
