Sbragia Family Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Cimarossa Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

These vines grow in decomposed volcanic rock that is mineral-rich. well drained and porous. encouraging the 20- to 40- year-old vines to dig deep in search of water. We pick grapes at optimum ripeness and make a wine that is elegant and rich with intense flavors and good acidity.

Sbragia Family Vineyards:
I've had for some time, a small, family-owned winery making limited, individual lots of wine from grapes grown in select blocks of my favorite vineyards. I've always had one foot in Sonoma and the other in Napa. Both areas mean a lot to me emotionally. I'm more attached to Dry Creek because it's where I raised my kids.

I've had for some time, a small, family-owned winery making limited, individual lots of wine from grapes grown in select blocks of my favorite vineyards. I've always had one foot in Sonoma and the other in Napa. Both areas mean a lot to me emotionally. I'm more attached to Dry Creek because it's where I raised my kids. But the wines that I've made at Beringer are like children, so Napa is also a very special place for me. Either way, the wines are intensely personal, an expression not only of terroir, but of my family's winemaking heritage. -Ed Sbragia   Come visit us at our beautiful location at the end of Dry Creek Road. Our winery is perched on a hillside, overlooking the entire valley with sweeping views from our terrace. Guests are invited to bring a picnic or purchase light deli items from our tasting room and enjoy the sunshine and vineyard views. Seated Terrace Tastings are now available by appointment. Sbragia Family Vineyards prides itself on its single vineyard varietals and small case production. Varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Most of the wines are made from vineyards owned by the Sbragia family, but do include select vineyards from Sonoma and Napa Valley as well. Our wines have received many accolades and are considered some of California’s best. The only thing better than the view is the wine! Read less

Rich sweet milk chocolaty covered nose with deep notes of integrated wood spice and some very sweet pipe tobacco. There's a nice light floral edge to the red fruit here and a slow to emerge base of earth builds in the glass. The fruit is really very curranty, black and red. Plush on entry but firm with well integrated acids lending nice clarity in the mouth. this is richly fruited and nearly perfectly proportioned, though still youthful. The fruit is bright, precise and fresh with lovely tannins adding detail and a nice tactile impression on the palate. Powerful and earthy this drives through the long finish with a blend of toasty oak and earthy fruit notes. It's a little hot on the finale but delivers alot of flavor and intensity in a rather streamlined and complex package. 92pts

Very herbal and floral nose, with cedar notes. Cherries, dark fruit and berry flavors. Dense, intense and concentrated. Finishes very long, with some nice smokey oak rounding it out. I paired this with a grilled coffee-crusted tenderloin and it was perfect.

The 2006 Andolsen CabernetSauvignon has a deep purple color with aromas of rich black fruits, cassis and hints of roses anddried herbs. Bright black cherry and black currants on the palate are accentuated by brown spiceand mocha leading to a lush mouth-feel supported by tannins, good structure and tannins andlingering on the long finish.
