Tasting notes

Dark, almost black color.  Beautiful, intense black fruit and chocolate. Black cherry, dried blueberry, blackberry. Vanilla, spice, toast, butterscotch. This wine just keeps coming at you with intense and inviting aromas that keep getting better with time in the glass. Medium-full body, plenty of nice acid, dark fruit, smoke and toast in the mouth with wonderful tannins.

Production notes

Grapes are from Bel’ Villa Estate Vineyard. Aged 21 months in 25% American and 75% French Oak. 100% new oak plus two thirds of the wine spent 5 months on new 2005 Nadalie French Oak prior to blending and bottling.

Other notes

Harvest Notes: Fairly consistent temperatures during bloom and set led to a nice, even set. A typically warm summer led into a late August early September ripening period of several days that were hot and dry followed by several cool days, causing sugar levels to spike up then drop to more “normal” levels. This pattern repeated itself, then changed to more typical extended fall ripening conditions of warm days and cool nights in later September. Our philosophy of picking at optimum flavor maturity caused us to ignore the higher brix early on and our patience was rewarded with later development of wonderfully concentrated ripe flavors that carried over into our wines.
