Our 2011 Cru Cabernet offers deeply saturated ruby and purple hues that promise to please the eye as greatly as the palate. Expressive aromas of blackberry, mountain sage, rose petal, and sandalwood emerge from the glass after gentle swirling. Lush, clean and precise, the palate abounds with expansive layers of bergamot, brambly black fruits, a touch of red cassis and dusty cocoa powder. Stunning in mouth-feel, this richly textured wine delivers velvety, palate-coating richness that carries through an endless finish. Sound acidity and fine grain tannins allow for graceful aging without delaying satisfaction and early enjoyment of this polished, supple wine. Enjoyable now or over the next 10 to 12 years. - WineryBlend:82% Cabernet Sauvignon6% Petite Verdot5% Merlot4% Cabernet Franc3% MalbecBarrel Age: 18 months in French Oak, 50% newCooperage: Taransaud, "O", Demptos, Saury, ErmitageAlcohol: 14.8%

Winemaker's Notes:

“It’s all about making the wine in the vineyard” is how Keith Emerson, Director of Winemaking at Vineyard 29, describes the philosophy behind making our Cru Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything from site selection, crop yield, and picking decisions are made with the final blend in mind. This is deliberate, detail-oriented winemaking resulting in an elegantly composed wine that depicts the best of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Cru Cabernet is a deep purple tinged wine of extraordinary depth and complexity. Primary aromas of dried red currant, ripe blackberries and milk chocolate give way to layers of fresh tobacco leaf, dried lavender and cedar. A generous palate offers roasted coffee, mocha, brambly black fruits and a touch of black pepper that slip seamlessly into a long supple finish. Stunning in mouthfeel, this profoundly textured wine will leave you wanting more. Well-integrated and balanced tannins give firm structure to this wine at release, yet are powerful enough to give our Cru many years of life. Open and enjoy our Cru Cabernet now and over the next 10 years." -Winery
