Winemaker’s Notes:

 

“The grapes for this wine come from four different vineyards in the Livermore Valley. They have been selected for producing exceptional wines for the region.

The Livermore Valley will produce stunning Cabs, and this vintage is no exception. The East end of the valley provides heat, deep soils, and a length to the day during the growing season that provides for weighty Cabernet Sauvignon. The west end has more pocketed terrain, more fertile ground and more even ripening.

Thatcher Bay on the east end is west facing, providing depth on the palate and structure. Two of the vineyards are in Kalthoff Commons, which is fairly flat ground with deep soils and increased topography providing retained cooling through the morning hours, it lends structure to the blend. And finally a vineyard at the base of Mt Diablo which has a wider swing in temperatures than the valley floor.

With the grace of this wine ageability is assured.”

 

Dane Stark, winemaker

 

Tasting Notes:

 

The color of this wine is ruby red in the center with clarity and vibrant edges.

It opens with broody, robust fruit, a touch of smoke and floral, and hints of chocolate and strawberry. It has a back drop of oak, not so much that it attracts center stage, but enough that the curtains are draped in it. 

The fruit is backed by rich cassis with a vanilla undertone. Medium tannins provide for a wonderful food wine and tremendous age-ability. The smooth finish mingles toasted oak and ripe fruit for a rich experience of classic Cabernet Sauvignon.
