This cabernet is so earthy. it has depth and structure and a long finish. There is a marked difference with mountain cabs. The tannins are more pronounced but do become approachable. I find less fruit and more mineral aspects plus a dustyness.


Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 growing season in the Napa Valley was one of the strangest in history. With adequate rainfall from the winter months, budbreak took place in late March and early April. Mother Nature played some tricks on the vineyard by delivering over 5 inches of rain in late April and was not about to let us have another early harvest like there was in 2002. The rains slowed down all progression of the vines until the end of May with bloom taking place in late June. A warm summer with temperatures hovering in the high 80's followed. In September, a series of heat waves with temperatures above 105 degrees caused widespread sunburn and dehydration. The affected fruit, as much as 33% in some areas, had to be dropped. Picking began in 2003 with the Cabernet Sauvignon on October 6th and finished on October 17th. Cabernet Franc was harvest on October 15th and Petit Verdot on October 29th. The extended hang time insured that the fruit was as ripe as possible with mature tannins.
