Eagles Trace Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

[Winemaker's Notes]: Cabernet Sauvignon displays a classic dark ruby color with a bouquet of cream de cassis leather all spice cigar box and black peppercorns. The taste is plum cherry blackberry and cassis with fine ripe tannins. Given an hour of aeration the wine fairly explodes with flavor. It will easily live for 20 years.

All great wines have a sense of place. The French call it terroir - the site, the soil and the climate. The grapes we have been growing here in Conn Valley for over 20 years consistently produce wines with a sense of place . Eagles TraceEagles Trace is an extension of the passion I developed for winemaking over more than 35 years, first as a home winemaker and later after studying grape growing and winemaking in the early 1980's at the University of California at Davis. The name refers to two significant historical themes of the United States. The Eagle became the official National emblem in 1782 when the great seal of the United States was adopted and signified the new country's freedom, strength, and expansion into the future. As the early pioneers expanded westward through the Appalachian Mountains, they found a "trace" or wilderness path through the mountains. Not unlike those early Americans, I set about on a wilderness path to find the way to create one of the world's great wines. Read less
