Rockledge Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena the Rocks 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Rockledge "The Rocks" Cabernet SauvignonA deep ruby-red almost black color invites you into the aromatics of The Rocks Cabernet Sauvignon 2004. Rich aromas of anise, blackberry, raspberry, chocolate, and clove emanate from the glass, leading to a full-bodied, unctuous, flattering mid-palate full of flavor and leading to a finish with persistence and complexity. Less than 500 cases were produced. winery notes: "High on the eastern slopes of the Napa Valley just south of the town of St. Helena is a saddle covered with loose rocky soil that extends down the benchland. On this precipitous ledge the 12 acre Rockledge estate vineyard is perched. Our favorite blocks are reserved for The Rocks. 2005 is our seventh vintage. We are very content to spend the rest of our lives discovering what little secrets our property chooses to reveal about how to make its wine while getting close to that ideal of being delicious young, and equally delicious when old."

Rockledge Vineyards:
High on the eastern slopes of Napa Valley just south of the town of St. Helena is a saddle covered with loose rocky soil that extends down the benchland. On this precipitous ledge the 12 acre Rockledge estate vineyard is perched. It's not that the rocks in our vineyard give off a lot of flavor. Their role is to take up space and deprive the vine of soil nutrients. Without struggle, there is no intensity. - Peter and Linda Snowden, Proprietors
