Winemaker Notes

Scents of jasmine invite the drinker in, as notes of peppermint stick, hazelnut, and licorice combine to create a distinctively marzipan aroma. The bouquet further exhibits hints of zest and clean notes of flint and wet stone. In the palate, a viscous, yet delicate introduction leads to a round and broad mouthfeel with flavors of huckleberry and baking spices. The 2003 features a classic structure, providing a vital and balanced foundation for the wine. The supple tannins are easily approached and lead to Anomaly's signature, velvety finish.

Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Classic Cabernet character from this St. Helena wine, which contains small amounts of Cab Franc and Petite Verdot. Opens with a splashy burst of black currants, spicy cherry liqueur, charry cedar and new oak and turns elegant and complex in the mouth. Polished, delicate structure, with a round, supple feel. Finishes dry and long.

Anomaly Winery Image
Anomaly Vineyards is located at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains in California's Napa Valley in the small historic town of St. Helena. Anomaly specializes in the production of the highest-quality Cabernet Sauvignon. The first vintage of Anomaly was harvested in 1997 and made by us, "budding garagists." Buoyed by the praise of our 1997 vintage (mostly by our friends!), we embarked on the journey of obtaining a permit to produce Cabernet Sauvignon by building a small winery adjacent to our small vineyard. And what a "journey" it was! In the fall of 2000, a hard-fought battle with the City was won, and we secured a permit to build a stone winery replete with a 2,000 square foot underground cave. Construction commenced in Spring 2001 and was completed in time for harvest in 2002.

Anomaly's first release consisted of 300 cases and sold out immediately. As the vineyards matured, the increased availability of grapes allowed us to gradually produce more wine.

St. Helena Wine

Napa Valley, California

View all products

St. Helena is in the heart of the Napa Valley, nestled between Calistoga to the north and Rutherford on its southern border. On its western side, the Mayacamas Mountains guard it from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean; to its east stand the Vaca Mountains. In conjunction, these mountain ranges serve to lock in summer daytime heat. But in the evening, cool air from the San Pablo Bay funnels up through the valley, creating very chilly nights. It isn’t uncommon for temperatures to drop 50 degrees, a shift that promotes a balance of sugar ripeness and acidity in wine grapes.

St. Helena contains a plethora of different soil types in a small area, which have been enhanced over centuries by rain runoff from both mountain ranges. Its vineyards cover a variety of terrain, spreading across the bucolic valley floor and its benchlands.

These ideal topographic and climatic growing conditions easily caught the attention of early winemaking pioneers. In fact, St. Helena is the birthplace of Napa Valley’s commercial wine industry. Dr. Crane founded his cellar in 1859, David Fulton in 1860 and Charles Krug in 1861.

Today there are no less than 400 separate vineyards planted within the 12,000 acres that make up the St. Helena appellation.

Revered most for its red wines based on Bordeaux varieties, namely Cabernet Sauvignon, the St. Helena appellation is also a source of superior Syrah, Zinfandel and Sauvignon blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
