2006 Sonoma Valley Red Wine "les Vestiges"
Sonoma Valley

A Right Bank Bordeaux blend of 50% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, and 13% Petit Verdot from a vineyard we designed, planted, established, and farmed over several years at the northern tip of the Sonoma Valley. The young vineyard has given a wine with a relatively robust 14% alcohol, while the pH (3.79) and acidity (.60 g/100mL) provide a crisp counterbalance and, together with the powder-fine tannins, contribute to the seamless and sophisticated mouthfeel. Clean, pure, and serious, the wine is rounded out by 50% tight-grain new French Oak from a selection of coopers and barrel aged for 17 months. Aromatically, black tea, sage, citrus blossom, confiture cerises, brioche, honeysuckle, and allspice are evident. On the palate, an expansive entry evolves to a round and balanced texture with flavors on the border between the red and black fruit spectrums exhibiting black cherry, red currants, and plum notes. The finish is creamy and clean at the same time, with the mid palate flavors persisting and becoming more intertwined with the light vanilla and pain grillé notes, all lingering for a long, fine, finish.
