We started Captûre Wines because we were collectively inspired by the vineyard we discovered that rises almost 2,500 feet above the Alexander Valley floor on Pine Mountain, and we shared a vision of crafting a portfolio of world-class, Bordeaux-style wines from our corner of California. The team behind Captûre Wines is united around a deep respect for Tin Cross Vineyards and a commitment to the finest expression of our mountain fruit through time-honored Bordeaux winemaking methods. Captûre Wines represent the marriage of time-honored Bordeaux winemaking with the intense fruit character of our organically farmed mountain estate, Tin Cross Vineyards. Renowned winemaking team May-Britt and Denis Malbec, formerly of Château Latour in Bordeaux, create our wines to bring out the rich personality of our terroir. The resulting wines are elegant expressions of depth, nuance and longevity. We look forward to sharing them with you. Although our winery is not open to the public for tastings, please let us know if you are planning a visit to Healdsburg, as we can occasionally accommodate private tours of our vineyard, nestled among the 240 acres of our Pine Mountain estate.

Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (84 percent), this is a denser, more powerful wine than Captanducirc;reandrsquo;s Harmonie (recommended here, among the blends). The fruit tannins combine the new French oak to dry the finish and narrow the range of flavor. Itandrsquo;s a rich wine that needs long aging for those tannins to mellow and allow the fruit to come forward.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Revelation possesses quite a bit of depth as well as energy. Blackberries, graphite, camphor, leather and licorice are some of the notes that flow from this Cabernet. The mountain tannins are quite present on the finish. The Revelation is attractive but far from compelling. The 2009 is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot plus a dollop of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2019.

The winemakers call this their Pauillac-style wine, meaning that its character is marked by Cabernet Sauvignon. Itandrsquo;s a brilliant wine, vastly deep, imposing and elegant, with a potent mountain flavor of black currant. The estate vineyard is very high in the Mayacamas Mountains, and you can sense the small size of the berries in the wines intensity, the sheer concentration, as well as the tannins andmdash; which are hard and tight. Clearly this is a wine that requires time in the cellar. Try in 2018, but it could worth aging well beyond that.

Red-ruby. Currant, graphite, minerals, leather and tobacco leaf on the nuanced nose. Nicely ripe and intense, with a supple texture and a subtle sweetness to the redcurrant, tobacco, espresso and licorice flavors. I like the combination of depth and juiciness here. Finishes with serious ripe tannins and lovely chocolatey persistence. Attractive already owing to its complexity but has the stuffing and balance for a graceful evolution in bottle.



Tasting Notes:

Alliance is a Bordeaux Left-Bank style blend, an approachable wine that is ready to drink at release. It offers a nose of lavender and dried flowers, and a palate of chocolate and both red and black fruits, with a round, juicy mid-palate and a lingering finish. The Alliance cuvee is most like a red Pessac-Léognan style of wine, driven by our most aromatic lots of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon as a base for structure and weight.
