    Winemaker Notes

    Due to the coolness of the vintage, this wine carries with it a bit more acidity than the 2004. Its saturated black hue has an electric quality to it. Notes of creosote, wet stones, white flowers and smoky cassis precede a palate of menthol, sweet tobacco leaf, melted licorice and blackberries. As the wine sits in glass, it turns to baker's chocolate, melted fudge and dried herbs. The tannins are a bit steely revealing its origin as a hillside wine. Though it has been in bottle 14 months, we still decant this wine in the morning for service with dinner. Hillside wines in 2003 have an unctuosity that develops with air making them candidates for a long nap in the cellar.

    Napa Valley

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    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.
