Wedding Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

First planted to Martha's Vineyard clone Cabernet in 1973, the Wedding Vineyard covers eleven gently sloping acres (up to 15 degrees, oriented south-west) on our Mountain Estate at an elevation of 1,200 feet. Approximately nine acres were replanted in 2002 under the careful guidance of David Abreu: seven blocks of Cabernet (clone 337 and Martha's Vineyard clone), one block of Petit Verdot (clone 400) and one block of Cabernet Franc (clone 327).

Tasting Notes

Aromas of dark cocao, casise and violet set the stage for this left bank styled wine. Cedar box, graphite, pen ink, slate, tobacco and wood resin meld beautifully together. Slight fruit precursors give way to an ever changing pallet of complex and brooding floral and forest floor notes. Black currant, sandalwood, bay leaves and oak resin round out the pallet which finishes with polished, fine grain tannins.

- Whitney Fisher, Winemaker
