Winemaker Notes

The 2006 Anthology is rich, smooth and spicy, a delicious wine. Mature cherry flavors and concentrated cassis fruits are brought to focus with cedar, and vanillin spiced accents. Graceful and powerful,, the lingering flavors are unctuous and seemingly endless

Sourcing grapes from most of Napa Valley's 14 appellations provides us with many alternatives when it comes to composing our pinnacle wine blend. The 2006 Anthology includes vineyard lots selected from the following appelations: Cabernet Sauvignon: Mount Veeder- Newton, Spring Mountain, Atlas Peak, Stags Leap District, Rutherford, St Helena Cabernet Franc: St Helena-Carpenter, Atlas Peak-Stagecoach. Merlot: St Helena- Collins, Atlas Peak- Stagecoach Petit Verdot: Yountville- Tall Trees Malbec: Yountville- Herrick

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
A beautiful, succulent young Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend that delivers plenty of flavor. It's front-loaded with blackberries, cherries, currants and chocolate. Delicious now, but it's a little too soft for the cellar.

Champagne

View all wine

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
