    Winemaker's Notes:

    Napa Valley's 2001 growing season experienced one of the longest bloom-to harvest periods in recent history. We began crushing the grapes August 8, one of the earliest onsets to harvest in 20 years. Then the weather changes and harvest became one of the longest in duration, with the last grapes picked at the end of October. Flavor maturity lagged behind sugar accumulation so we played a waiting game, delaying harvest until the flavor maturity caught up. We harvested these grapes from mid-September through October. The long hang-time on the vine resulted in rich flavors, exceptional balance and mature tannins in the Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
