    Winemaker Notes

    The 2006 "The Sisters" blend of Cabernet, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot is immediately apparent. A small dose of Cabernet Franc adds floral notes on the bouquet and a few hundred pounds of Petite Verdot creates a broad, beefy mid palate. The wine is darker than previous vintages and begins with notes of menthol, cassis, smoke and plum. The palate is filled with varietally correct elements of saddle leather, black olives, sweet tobacco and cedar. The Sisters doesn't suffer at all from some of the aggressive tannin that was the undoing for some wines in 2006. Its fruit sweetness kicks in early and the light tannins on the finish contribute a chewiness that both broadens and deepens the experience of the wine.

    Calistoga Wine

    Napa Valley, California

    View all products

    One of Napa Valley’s oldest wine growing subregions but last to gain appellation status, Calistoga occupies the northernmost section of the valley. Beginning at the foot of Mount St. Helena, its vineyards stretch over steep canyons and roll out onto the valley floor. The soils in Calistoga are volcanic, which means they are heavy in minerals, low in organic matter and allow good drainage for vine roots, creating less green growth and more concentration of flavor within the grape berries.

    Summer days are very hot but most nights cool down with moist ocean breezes sneaking in over the Mayacamas Mountains or from Knights Valley to its northwest.

    Cabernet Sauvignon is the area’s star variety with Zinfandel coming in a strong second, though the latter commands far less price per tonnage so continues to be outshined by Cabernet in vineyard acreage, save for some important exceptions.

    One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
