Vineyard 7 & 8 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 7 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The "7" Cabernet Sauvignon represents the second bottling highlighting a few select vineyards to show a wine with a true sense of place for the Spring Mountain District. The fruit consists primarily of fruit from a select group of growers on Spring Mountain, as well as some fruit from the younger Estate vines. Intense and rich, the "7" Cabernet displays a complex bouquet of black and red berries, intermixed with roasted and mineral notes. The youthful tannins are true to their mountain origin and will age beautifully over the next decade or more.

Led by our Winemaker, Luc Morlet, our approach is based on a collaborative effort to make the best wines possible from our vineyards. These vineyards, which lie above the fog, bring late ripening, low yields, natural drainage, and infertile volcanic soil. This adds to the distinctive quality of our wine, which is unlike any other appellation. Our facility allows us to micromanage the entire process, beginning in the vineyards and ending with the consumer. Small fermentations, strict sorting of the fruit, techniques based on cleanliness and organization...these philosophies are all part of our winemaking approach. Read less

Deep, dark purple, almost black in the glass. Blackberry and cassis are displayed on the nose, with secondary notes of limestone, violet and mint.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon "Seven" has an equally opaque purple color, with soaring aromatics of blueberry liqueur intermixed with blackberries and acacia flowers. Some cassis is present as well. Tannic and structured, and possibly as deep as the pr... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
