Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby. Locked up tight on the nose. Dense, fat and smoky in the mouth, with pliant flavors of musky red berries, black plum, licorice and tar. Offers lovely volume and sweetness, and the creamy texture that the pH of 4.1 would suggest. Finishes with broad, late-arriving tannins.
Range: 91-93

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Proprietary Red Lucia Abreu Vineyard (a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cabernet Franc) offers a fragrant bouquet of flowers, mocha, berry fruit, earth, and minerals. The wine is medium-bodied with good acidity, sharp tannins, and a hint of licorice. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age, and consume it over the following 10-15 years.

Aubert
Owner/winemaker Mark Aubert has had a distinguished winemaking career including a 12 year stint at Peter Michael where he followed Helen Turley. Aubert succeeded Turley again several years later at Colgin Cellars. He has been a winemaking consultant for several prestigious wineries including Sloan, Bryant and Futo. He crafts outstanding vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from estate and leased vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast in a full-blown hedonistic style. The first wines were released with the 2000 vintage. Ulises Valdez is Aubert's vineyard manager. Until 2008, the two Pinot Noirs have been from the Reuling Vineyard and UV Vineyard, both located in the Sonoma Coast AVA. A new estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyard has been planted adjacent Reuling, 4 acres of Pinot Noir were planted at Ritchie Vineyard in 2008, and 9 acres of Pinot Noir have been planted at a new site high above the town of Occidental. In 2008, there were six different single vineyard Chardonnays and five Pinot Noir wines.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
