Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Notes: Our 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers intense aromas of dark berry and chocolate with the right hint of mineral and a spicy, smoky, cedar character. This full-bodied wine has a smooth and silky mouthfeel, saturated with bright flavors of dried cherries, boysenberries and black plums. A touch of thyme and cassis adds to the complexity. The wonderful texture lingers gracefully and begs you to take another sip. - Jean-François Pellet, Winemaker The 2003 Vintage Although the Walla Walla Valley’s 2003 growing season was one of the warmest and driest in the past decade, our estate-vineyard grapes thrived. During the long, warm days, the grapes savored the sun and ripened to ideal sugar levels. Cool nights locked in acid levels, creating well-balanced flavors. Our wines from this vintage are expressive and concentrated with silky tannins. Wine Specifics: Varietal(s): 95.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.3 % Merlot, 2.2% Malbec Vineyard(s): 63.8% Seven Hills Vineyard, 36.2% Pepper Bridge Vineyard Appellation: 100% Walla Walla Valley Oak Program: 67% new oak, 33% used oak;100% French oak Time in Barrels: 22 months Harvest Date(s): September 3 through October 7, 2003 Brix at Harvest: 25.3 Total Acidity: 0.57 g/ml pH: 3.75 Finished Alcohol: 13.9% by volume Total Production: 3,142 9-liter cases and 100 cases of magnums
