Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Production 6000 Cases Terra Valentine produces wines with mountain intensity and balance that express the character of the Spring Mountain District appellation, the vineyards and the passion of the winemaking team. Terra, the Latin word for "land," acknowledges the importance of hillside soil in the mountain wines. Valentine honors Owner Angus Wurtele's father, Valentine Wurtele. Winemaker Sam Baxter appreciates the importance of balance in the creation of mountain wines. With the use of fully automated sealed punch-down tanks, we are able to extract better tannins. The short harvest of 2001 finished off an extremely long growing season allowing for maximum flavor development with perfect ripening weather in September and October. Our 2001 Spring Mountain District Cabernet is 100% Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon, expressing the intensity and complexity of our vineyards in a great vintage. A blend of 19 different lots of estate cabernet each picked at the maximum flavor for the various microclimates, this wine showcases our estate vineyards and the Spring Mountain District appellation. Aromas: The nose opens with a rich core of dark, ripe jammy fruits followed by notes of bing cherry, blackberry jam, black licorice, cocoa , caramel, and hints of toast and spice. Mouth: Bright jammy fruit entry with balanced acidity and rich creamy cocoa tannins. The fruit carries weight into the mid palate finishing with rich toasted French oak character. 100% Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes Brix at Harvest 25.5

Very Bordeaux-like on the nose. Lean with a lot of finesse in the mouth and a dark red fruit finish. Delicious.
