2007 Stags' Leap Cabernet
Sauvignon Napa Valley

From the producer: Round supple tannins wrapped around layers of blackberry, espresso and black truffle. THE LEAP ESTATE GROWN CABERNET SAUVIGNON opens with complex aromas of cinnamon, leather and cassis. The structure is dense and compact with harmonious layers of red fruit and ripe, dark plum. Aged for 24 months in barrels, fully resolved and mature tannins carry through to a long finish of brambles, coffee and cocoa powder.

Ridge 2007 Santa Cruz Mountains Estate
2007 Ridge Santa Cruz Mountains Estate Cabernet/Merlot
From the producer: An unusually early spring brought bud-break in February. Cold weather in late September and much of October delayed harvest, but sun and warmth returned at the end of October, ripening the grapes fully. When tannin proved difficult to extract, we changed our partial-whole-berry approach to full crush, for greater seed/juice contact. Frequent pump-overs during the natural primary continued until pressing. Secondary fermentation was uninoculated. In February, we chose eighteen beautifully-balanced lots from the Monte Bello vineyard for the Santa Cruz Mountains Estate. At summer rack, we added three more merlot lots. At the fourteenth month, tastings indicated that the rich press wine contributed greater complexity; it, too, was included. This fine wine shows ripe mountain fruit, integrated barrel spice, and elegant structure. Though enjoyable now, its tannins will resolve further as flavors mature over the next eight to ten years. EB (2/09) (58% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 42% MERLOT, bottled May 2009)
