Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee Sonoma County 2007
Generous on varietal concentration; stingy on yields. This sums up the outcome of the 2007 growing season and vintage. There was relatively early initiation of bud break which was followed by nearly perfect, mild climatic conditions throughout most of the season. This mild weather was especially welcomed since winter rainfall was nearly half of normal and so any big heat spikes in the spring or summer would put a lot of strain on water needs. The most pronounced characteristic of the season is small berry size. While leading to short yields, this has led to wines of astounding concentration and expression.

Soft, rich aromas and flavors of blueberry preserves, red currants & vanilla cream, with a meaty texture and notes of sweet sage and herbs de proven e. The long, chewy finish is full of dense berry and cocoa. A lush, fruit-forward wine intended to be enjoyed within five years of vintage.
