Winemaker's Notes:

Cellar Notes : The 2001 vintage will be remembered for its long and ideal growing conditions that ultimately produced wines of great power and big extraction. Starting with a mild winter that led into a cool spring, the summer began with heat spikes in June, but managed to even itself resulting in fast but nearly perfect harvest conditions. A late summer rain came in September, cleaning the grapes in time for a condensed and quick harvest yielding fruit of excellent quality in moderate yields. We source Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Cabernet Franc from several appellations within Napa Valley where Bordeaux varieties flourish, including Mount Veeder, Oakville, Rutherford and St. Helena. Classic winemaking techniques are employed-each component is aged separately for one year in 100 percent French oak. Once the best lots are selected, the assemblage is made and returned to barrel for an additional eight months of aging. Winemaker's Comments: Enticing aromas of blueberry, black cherry, coffee and toffee are the introduction to this elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. A full-bodied entry of blackberry and wild cherry hit the palate as flavors of cola, chocolate, coffee and leather commingle to create a complex and multifaceted wine.The velvety tannins carry notes of blueberry through to the long, supple finish that lingers with hints of smoke from the 100 percent French oak. Varietal Content: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Cabernet Franc Harvest Appellation: Napa Valley Harvest Dates: September 25-October 15, 2001
