Community Tasting Notes 1

  • schott13 wrote:

    October 2, 2013 - A cooler year in the vineyard allows a winemaker to play with aromatic and flavor nuances that may be lost in warmer seasons. This lovely offering shows the trademark raspberry, fresh plum and dusty cocoa tones that personify its Rutherford origins, but with more subtle, graceful notes of sweet anise, cinnamon bark and bayberry adding complexity that only a slow-ripening vintage like 2011 could produce. Texturally, this 100% Cabernet has enough backbone to lend a serious basenote of power, yet shows restraint and finesse despite the complex flavors. The finish lingers with flavors of warm plum and vanilla, with a hint of toasty oak.

    This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was produced entirely from grapes grown on the J.J. Cohn Estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley. Harvested entirely by hand between October 15 and October 27, 2011, each section of vineyard was held separately for fermentation on skins, aged in French
    oak barrels for approximately 16 months, blended, and bottled without fining or filtration in
    April 2013.
