The 2006 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several of
Sonoma County’s most prestigious appellations and blended seamlessly to bring
together the unique characteristics of each, creating a superbly balanced Cabernet
Sauvignon. The wine offers many layers, featuring aromas and flavors of red
cherry, blackberry and fresh sage with an underlying dry creek dustiness. Subtle
herbal notes are complemented by additional layers of chocolate and vanilla,
resulting in a complex, yet easy drinking, wine.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness during September and October,
then de-stemmed but not crushed upon arrival at the winery, leaving 20% - 30%
whole berries in the fermenter. This process retains the grape's varietal character
and minimizes bitter tannin extraction in the wine. Extended skin contact occurred
for an average of 6–8 days for maximum extraction of color and flavor. A variety
of yeast strains were used to ensure the development of desired flavor and aroma
characteristics and 100% of the wine completed malolactic fermentation.
