Harvest Notes

Record-breaking winter rainfall kicked off the season, replenishing soils and ponds. A
pleasant spring brought bud break at the normal time, and we welcomed small berries
with excellent color. A hot summer came to a peak on Labor Day weekend but our
grapes fared well and once cooler weather arrived, our red varietals were able to
mature at a gradual pace. This wine celebrates Cabernet Blocks 18 (Clone #4) and 9
(Clone #7); which were planted in the 1990 's and beautifully express our terroir.

Tasting Notes

Lyon Vineyard was the source for our first Autumn-inspired Cabernet Sauvignon.
Opaque, clear dark purple with an effusive nose of black fruits (black currant,
huckleberry, blackberry), with aromas of warm toast, brambles, roasting coffee beans
and hints of suede. Smooth, medium-full texture with bright acidity and a
wonderfully even mouth feel that amplifies with time Flavors of blackberry compote,
black tea, toasted walnuts are followed by a surprising hint of pomegranate. A clean,
sexy and lingering finish echoes black fruits and dark chocolate.
