"Cherry and cassis aromas emanate from a spiced oak and cedar base.
Firm and richly-postured, wood spice and blackberry flavors are
nicely integrated and increase in intensity, finishing with a
flourish of chocolate cream ganache." - Mike McGrath, Winemaker
BLEND: 100% Cabernet
The thin rocky
soils, steep slopes, and rugged terrain on Mt.Veeder make farming
the vineyard a challenge. Cultivation and harvesting are done
entirely by hand. At 1,400 feet, this block rises above the fog
line. Its nights are warmer and its days are cooler than the valley
floor. The vines grow slowly and produce small berries giving
extremely low yields. The reward is wines that are intense and
chewy with magnificent spice-rich, earthy tannins and bold, dark
The 2008 vintage began with severe spring frost, and fruit set was
down by as much as 30% in some areas. Smaller clusters and berries
were also the norm, resulting in fruit with greater concentration.
More intense than its predecessor, this vintage is richly
structured and has greater depth. The wines are rich and powerful,
with great potential for aging.
