Winemaker Notes

In abnormal vintages, terroir, the uniqueness due to all aspects of vineyard site, can be everything. In spite of a warm summer, our Cabernet harvest was late, beginning well after mid-October, finishing with 128 days of maturing time between bloom and harvest. Because of this long maturation, the fruit had ample time to achieve the ripe tannin necessary for the paradoxically soft, while eminently age-worthy, red wine high in healthy mouth-filling tannin. Some have dubbed this the "yummy factor." Whatever you call it, this wine has plenty.

It is lovely, rich textured, approachable, and thoroughly enjoyable. The vineyard's intrinsic quality comes through in the wine's depth of flavor. The more hedonistic fruity flavors and inviting texture are supported by pleasant earth-tones and the spice common to our wines. These are the aromas that will come forward, center stage, as the wine matures, suggesting "cedar-y" cigar boxes and redwood forests. -Winemaker Fred Payne

Michel-Schlumberger, California
Established in 1979, the benchland vineyards of Michel-Schlumberger overlook Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley. Influenced by his family's four hundred years of grape growing and winemaking in Alsace, owner Jacques Schlumberger is committed to producing small lots of fine wine imprinted with the property's distinct terroir.Winemaker Fred Payne applies the highest standards to compose classic wines which express the intriguing nuances of each vintage. Partly modern naturalist and partly old-fashioned farmer, he strongly believes Michel-Schlumberger wines are representative of their soil, climate and grape.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

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.
