    Winemaker Notes

    Displaying a fantastic, dark ruby color, this Cabernet has a developing nose highlighted with cinnamon, blackberry pie, plum and vanilla cream. The mouthfeel is balanced, with firm yet accessible tannins; intense, dark fruit, and earthy tones. An immediately drinkable Cabernet with a long lingering finish.

    Robert Goyette, California
    Mr. Goyette's winemaking ability is better described as an innate sense than a technical skill. If there are 'green thumbs' in gardening, then Bob has a 'purple thumb' when it comes to making wine. This natural sense revealed itself many years ago when Bob was part of the start of the boutique winery movement in California. The 'boutique' wineries were the small wineries that were intent on making wines that pushed past the 'functional beverage' that had been made up to that point. This includes wineries like Ridge, Monterey Peninsula, Calera, La Crema, and Kistler. All of these wineries distinguished themselves by making small lots, vineyard designated, and by using traditional French techniques, which were innovative at the time.

    Bob's hope for his new Robert Goyette Wines is that, at the end of the bottling line, they will evoke what he terms "the positive connotation" of beauty, as it is experienced not only through the senses, but also, and perhaps more importantly, through the emotions. This means that the wine's various elements must be in balance according to their strengths...and frailties. High notes need to be counterbalanced with low notes, long ones with short ones, and all of them need to come together harmonically on the palate in order to make wines Bob can call his own.

    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.
