Tasting Notes

Release Date: Spring 2011

In the just published Secrets of the Sommelier wine guru Rajat Parr recommends a few wines across the major varieties. Remarkably the only wine mentioned from California is our “Saratoga Cuvée” Cabernet Sauvignon.

His tasting notes state “This Cabernet Sauvignon – dominated blend features wonderful Old World complexity in the form of underbrush, earth, tobacco and dried herbs, but it is layered on a firm bed of New World fruit, featuring black cherry and plum. Its tannins are silky and ripe.”

It’s so nice to have someone else (especially Rajat) write my tasting notes for me. I concur. What the 2007 offers is an incredible Cabernet vintage with power and weight, balance and finesse. Produced along the same parameters as our Estate wine, we use natural yeasts, natural secondary fermentation, non-invasive winemaking, no fining or filtration. A pure expression of our beautiful wine region this wine is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot 2% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec.
