    Winemaker Notes

    Our Bordeaux-style Cabernet blend is renowned for its elegant structure, dark berry flavors, and smooth tannins. The 2000 Affinity blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc is created from premier Napa Valley floor vineyards, including our Coombsville estate, Rutherford, Oakville and Carneros districts.

    Aroma: Enticing bouquet of sweet black cherry and ripe boysenberry surrounded by subtle hints of mocha, violet and spice. Flavors: Intense and complex flavors spotlight black cherry and boysenberry interwoven with mineral notes, fresh herbs and tea. Finish: Flavors continue to unfold with dark fruit, mocha, earth, and sweet oak predominating. Full-bodied yet elegant, offering mouth-filling fruit, round tannins and excellent structure for aging.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

    In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
