A complex nose of ripe plum, cherry, and cassis; with a hint of cedar and vanilla. The mouth is filled with flavors of black cherry, berry jam, and red currant. Firm, but fine-grained tannins fill the palate and provide a lengthy finish of spice and red fruit.

Wine maker notes
All of the fruit was gently destemmed and crushed, then inoculated with Pasteur Red yeast. Fermentations were pumped-over twice daily, with the temperature peaking at 88º F. Maceration time varied from 14 to 30 days depending on vineyard block. The wine was aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (45% new). Rackings occurred every 4 months until bottling in August of 2008. The final blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. This wine is drinkable upon release, but has the ability to age for the next 10 - 15 years.

The Truchard Estate Vineyard is located in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. It is 270 acres of hills and valleys, which contain a variety of soils: clay, shale, sandstone, limestone, volcanic ash and rock. The combination of terrain, geology, and marine-moderated temperatures, provides "micro-climates” well suited for wine-growing. Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in several different sites -on steep, southwestern-facing hillsides. The vines range from 3 to 25 years old, and produce wines that are deep in color, dominated by lush flavors of plum, berry, and spice. Cabernet Franc, grown in the "Highlands” area of the vineyard, is blended in to provide additional softness, structure, and complexity.
