Wine Notes

Description

Deep garnet in color with lush aromas of warm blueberry, dried cherry, brown sugar and allspice with hints of licorice, briary and toasty oak. The entry of this Cabernet Sauvignon is silky, smooth and supple. A subtle minerality complements
flavors of black cherry, fresh strawberry and star anise. This wine is well-structured with velvety tannins and a lasting finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2007 growing season exhibited many exceptional indicators that began with early bud break, followed by mild spring and summer weather patterns, thus extending ripening periods for many varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon. Low winter rainfall and a mild summer with few heat spikes fostered even grape ripening. The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon were picked mid to late September.

Vineyard Notes

The grapes for the 2007 Generations Cabernet Sauvignon represent some of the best vineyards and appellations in the Napa Valley. The majority come from a vineyard in St. Helena that the Raymonds helped to plant. The remaining grapes came from our Rutherford estate vineyard and from a vineyard in Oakville, located just south of our estate. By blending grapes from the St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville appellations, we are able to make a wine that represents the best of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.
