Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

About This Wine: Aromas of spiced smoky rum, toasted plums and bright cranberries. The palate showcases seductively elegant rich fruit building to a full, mouth filling, round finish with a powerful yet subtle grip. Succulent and rich, this wine’s intense composition is savored with every sip!<br/><br/> <strong>Production Notes</strong>: Fermentation: Open-top, small vat, cold soaked, extended maceration, gentle punch downs.<br/><br/> About Ceja Vineyards: Welcome to Ceja Vineyards. Each day as we gaze at the surrounding vineyards, we are reminded of the first Ceja vine. Planting our first vine together in rich Carneros soil was an exciting moment. That vine symbolized our bond as a family and strengthened our shared commitment to produce premium wines. We proudly continue a three-generation tradition of growing choice grapes in the beautiful Napa and Sonoma Valleys. We invite you to join us on our journey.<br/><br/> As you explore our website you'll see, repeated often, a bell with the Latin inscription: vinum (wine), cantus (song), and amor (love). In Mexico, church bells ring to reveal the time, announce community celebrations or call parishioners to church. We have adopted the bell as our trademark, and symbolically ring it now to invite you to become a part of Ceja Vineyards.<br/><br/> Our Vineyards Terroir, (pronounced tair wahr), is a French term and strictly translated refers to the earth. In the Carneros Region, the term is defined as a special set of conditions encompassing all the components that affect the grapes grown here. The soil’s chemistry and physical structure, the slope and orientation of the hills and valleys and the weather are all factors of terroir.<br/><br/> Located approximately 40 miles northeast of San Francisco, the Carneros Region’s moderate climate is created by fog, moist air, and cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean. Protected from harsh weather by the Coastal Range, Carneros summer days are warm with cool nights and winters are mild. As a result, grapes stay on the vine longer, reaching high acidity and full flavor development.<br/><br/> At Ceja Vineyards, we match vines to terroir, planting each variety where it grows best. Our wines are a true reflection of their origins.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Vintage:</strong> 2007<br/><br/> <strong>Varietal:</strong> Cabernet Sauvignon<br/><br/> <strong>Varietal Composition:</strong> 100% Pinot Noir<br/><br/> <strong>Appellation:</strong> Napa Valley.<br/><br/> <strong>Vineyard Designation:</strong> Napa Valley, Silverado Trail, La Loma Vineyard<br/><br/> <strong>Harvest Date:</strong> October 23, 2007<br/><br/> <strong>Sugar:</strong> 24.6° at harvest<br/><br/> <strong>PH:</strong> 3.48<br/><br/> <strong>Aging:</strong> 34 months in French barrels<br/><br/> <strong>Alcohol:</strong> 13.8%<br/><br/>
