Winemaker Notes

Seavey Vineyard's sixteenth 100% estate-produced Cabernet, the 2005, was made from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot grapes that came from vines planted on several different locations of the South-facing hillside vineyard. The grapes were harvested with low yields (on average 1 to 1.5 tons/acre). Winemaking style followed classic Bordeaux methods. The grapes were sorted, destemmed and gently lifted into small tanks for fermentation. The juice remained in contact with the skins for an average of three weeks. Malolactic fermentation occurred while the wine aged for 19 months in French oak barrels, (50% new oak), and was bottled on May 25, 2006.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The densely black/purple-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has the telltale burning ember, blackberry, and cassis notes, with hints of underbrush, espresso roast, chocolate, and subtle oak. A large, full-bodied wine of admirable intensity, terrific length, and no hard edges, this is a beauty that has put on weight since I tasted it in barrel and immediately after bottling last year. It should evolve effortlessly for 35+ years.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich, focused and complex, with appealing black cherry, red currant and plummy Cabernet flavors that are pure and full-bodied, tapering off a bit on the finish. This was the better of two bottles.

Seavey Vineyard, California
Seavey Vineyard Winery Image
In the 1870s – when Conn Valley Road was little more than a wagon trail – the land which we now farm was planted with grapes to make a “Claret of high repute.” This wine was judged by the St. Helena Star to be “as fine as one might find anywhere.” Commonly known as the Franco-Swiss Farming Company, this was the pioneering vineyard and winemaking operation of Conn Valley. After roughly thirty years of producing great wines, the company dissolved due to the impact of a phylloxera infestation and Prohibition. For more than a half century, cattle roamed the land and grain was farmed but no more grapes were cultivated until Bill and Mary Seavey acquired the land in 1979. Bill and Mary set out to revive the original vineyard, planting the south-facing hillsides of Conn Valley near Lake Hennessey. By 1990, we had remodeled an 1881 stone dairy barn into a small winery and began producing small quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Small blocks of Merlot and Petit Verdot were also added along with a second winery building which includes an underground wine cave.
