Hundred Acre Ark Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard literally explodes from the glass. Precise veins of minerality frame the fruit in this intense, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Black cherries, violets, tar and graphite are all layered together beautifully. Hints of chocolate, mocha and sweet spices appear late. The 2010 Ark sits on the razors edge of ripeness, as the Hundred Acre wines often do. At the same time, these wines have a way of developing notable complexity in bottle. There is a level of intensity matched by expressive inner perfume that is compelling.
Dark red fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and exotic spices are some of the many notes that flow from this fabulous, textured Cabernet Sauvignon. No detail has been overlooked.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2030+.
Verite La Joie Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
French for "joy," La Joie emphasizes Cabernet Sauvignon and beautifully represents a Pauillac-style wine. Each vintage is an amalgam of distinct components harvested from small vineyard blocks in the southern tip of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, resulting in a carefully considered convergence of grape varieties, climate, soil exposition, and winemaking technique.
This wonderfully deep and concentrated wine is very well balanced with notes of black currants, black cherries, and red berries paired with an integrated soft oak component. It possesses a rich, full-bodied personality with mouth-filling levels of tannin, extract, and fruit. Vibrant and impressive.
64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, and 3% Malbec.
The bouquet and the palate of this wine will continue to evolve and age for years to come with anticipated maturity in 2014 to 2045.
