Herzog Special Edition Cabernet Sauvignon Chalk Hill Warnecke Vineyard 2008
In producing this Special Edition wine, the Herzog family selected a region of California known to employ the latest scientific advances in winemaking. They sought to create a wine that would share the same commitment to excellence that the Baron would insist upon with the same fine taste that people have come to expect from Herzog wines for over 100 years.Herzog Special Edition Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from grapes harvested at the base of Chalk Hill in Alexander Valley. Warnecke Vineyard is owned by Jack Carl Warnecke and its 77 acres are planted primarily with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The first blocks were planted here in 1972.This wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and displays notes of plum, blackberry and cassis highlighted by an oak bouquet.
At the gateway to the Central Coast wine region, Herzog Wine Cellars in Oxnard, California, is a testament to the Herzog family’s commitment to making great wine. The new winery, designed with our Special Reserve wines and small-lot winemaking in mind, combines state-of-the-art winemaking technology with a hands-on approach to artisanal winemaking. Also at the winery is Tierra Sur Restaurant, serving seasonal Mediterranean cuisine for both lunch and dinner.
