Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon Ame Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Ame comes from the estate's finest block of Cabernet Sauvignon. It sees more new oak during the aging process than the Neyers Ranch cuvee. Made in limited quantities, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with a distinctive perfume of blackberries, cassis, smoke, camphor, and earth. Deep and full-bodied, with plenty of sweet, well-integrated tannin, it will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age, and should last for two decades thereafter.

Begun in 1992 by Bruce and Barbara Neyers, Neyers Vineyards produces about 15,000 cases of wine annually. About 25% of our production is Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on our 50-acre, organically farmed Conn Valley ranch. The vineyard is managed by Maldonado Vineyard Management. We purchase additional grapes from a select group of growers, among them the Sangiacomo family of the Carneros District, Will Nord of Napa, Cam Thieriot of Sonoma Coast, Lee Hudson of Carneros, Jay and Pam Heminway of Chiles Valley, Rich Pato of Oakley, and the Tofanelli family of Calistoga. Winemaker Tadeo Borchardt joined us in 2004 after several years of experience in the industry making wine in both California and New Zealand. He's a Cum Laude graduate of the University of Arizona, a zealous advocate of our natural winemaking practices and an enthusiastic supporter of our appreciation for traditionally produced European wines. He brings with him a valuable combination of technical know-how and respect for tradition. Consulting winemaker Ehren Jordan returned to the Napa Valley in 1994 following a two-year stint in the Northern Rhone town of Cornas, where he worked for Jean-Luc Columbo, one of the most respected vintners in Europe. Ehren's training with Columbo expanded his technical knowledge of winemaking, while enlarging his understanding of grape growing. He has been with us as a partner, winemaker, consultant or friend since we began the business in 1992. Bruce's experiences over the past several years working with Kermit Lynch Imports and a group of more than 100 French vintners have been important in shaping the style of our wines. Most of these producers farm organically, make their wines naturally without use of cultured yeast or laboratory designed winemaking aids, and are comfortable bottling their wines without either fining or filtration. We have long admired their wines, and eagerly adopted many of their natural winemaking practices. In 1999, we purchased and renovated a winery on Sage Canyon Road in the hills outside of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. We produced our first vintage in this state of the art facility in 2000. In 2002, Wine and Spirits Magazine named Neyers Vineyards the Artisan Winery of the Year. Read less

tight nose with black currant jam, oak spice, and soil tones, a touch of dried herb lurking, this is big with lots of dry extract, super fine tannins, good acidity, dense and chewy with dark, mysterious flavors, lots of spicy herbals tones to the currant fruit, a bit waxy and balsamic, mouth filling with a fine core of sweet dark fruit chilling in there somewhere. Dark coffee tones and mocha lead to the chewy rather massive finish. This needs plenty of time but has the stuffing to be a winner 92pts

This is a bottling of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard at the highest elevation on our Conn Valley property. Planted by Dave Abreu in 1996 on a steep, south - facing slope at the north end of our ranch, this parcel has given us remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, both complex and dramatic.
