2003 Odyssey
St. Helena

We call this wine ODYSSEY because each vintage takes us on a journey to blend the finest fruit from our Odyssey Vineyard located 1,350 feet above the valley floor.

The 2003 is comprised of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 29% Merlot, and 1% Syrah. It is blended to express the essence of our vineyards on Atlas Peak. The texture is rich, giving a wonderful “mouth feel.” While not one of the varietals dominates the flavor, one still has the impression of Napa Valley Cabernet. There are “layers” of flavors, with black cherry predominating while nuances of white pepper, chocolate and cinnamon are present. This is a great example of the winemaker’s “art” of blending varietals to make the sum add up to more than the “parts.” While very approachable now, we believe this wine will easily age for 8 to 10 years with its tannin structure.
