Winemaker Notes

The 2007 Aurielle Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, dark, and red/purple in color with vibrant clarity and an unctuous texture. The nose is typical of Howell Mountain Cabernet and features ripe plum, cedar, tobacco, and white pepper. On the palate, the core of boysenberry, plum and cassis that defined the 2006 Aurielle remains but the fruit flavors are brighter and more layered and there is a bit more acid to compliment the intense fruit.

Well extracted and dense, the initial essence of the 2007 is stonefruit and cassis which gives way to a layered mid-palate of blueberry, cedar and black cherry and a long lingering finishe layered with hints of vanilla, cardamom and tobacco. The mouthfeel is rich and velvety with firm, fine-grained tannins and provide excellent structure. Fruit/acid balance is superb and speaks to the attention to winemaking detail.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A new discovery for me, Aurielle Vineyards’ 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with the hallmarks of the 2007 vintage, exuberance, opulence and pure fruit. With abundant creme de cassis notes, medium to full body and silky tannin, it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 10-15 years.

Aurielle- from the Latin root AUR meaning "golden" and "sound" and inspired by the qualities of the golden ratio, the mathematical principle that describes perfection and balance in the most classical sense. The golden ratio is represented in the spiral of a Nautilus seashell and by the most pleasing compositions in music, art and architecture. It is where art and science blend to become one and it forms the essence of the no compromise wine-making philosophy that created this extremely limited production (only 358 cases) 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that Connoisseurs Guide rated 94 points. The 2008 follows the sold-out 2007 that Robert Parker rated 93 points and called "A new discovery".

This extraordinary new wine was hand crafted by Chad Alexander, Aurielle's rising-star winemaker, from fanatically tended grapes grown at two tiny, low-yielding vineyards in Napa's Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder appellations. The fruit was hand-picked and sorted, cold-soaked, fermented with natural yeast, then chilled and left to rest for an additional three weeks on the skins before spending two years aging in the finest new French oak barrels and an additional year in the bottle. A costly and time consuming process- but one that produces the elegant waves of flavor, deep purple color and silky texture that caused Robert Parker to describe it as "exuberance, opulence and pure fruit" and Wine Enthusiast to proclaim it as "delicious".

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
