What began with a wet winter and spring continued with rainfall into
mid-June. Few high heat events occurred, but Pierre, our vineyard
manager and winemaker, managed more open vine canopies to ensure
sunlight, warmth and good air circulation around the grape clusters.
Dry, sunny weather in the Fall provided ideal ripening and picking
conditions on the Silverado Bench. Wines of the 2011 vintage will see
excellent color and elegant flavors.
Dark garnet in color, this wine has aromas of dark cherry and cedar box
with a touch of vanilla. Raspberry, currant and licorice notes wrap
around the palate with a long, smooth, lingering finish. Amazingly
approachable now, this Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully over the
next 15 years.
