2003 Cabernet Sauvignon
Nuns Canyon Reserve, Sonoma County

The 2003 growing season was characterized by mild weather early on, and culminated in several periods of intense heat during the end of the season. As a result, our Nuns Canyon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon developed firm tannins and concentrated black fruit flavors. To soften the wine and add lushness to the mid-palate, we blended in 10% Merlot from our Behler Estate Vineyard, which ripened earlier in the season, and 10% Petit Verdot from the Rockpile Vineyard to add spiciness to the flavor profile. Aging the wine for two full years in French oak barrels adds hazelnut, almond and vanilla flavors to this complex Cabernet Sauvignon. After one year of bottle aging, the wine is ready to drink now, and will continue to evolve for up to 12 years in proper cellar conditions.
