Tasting Notes

This elegant, polished and multifaceted blend has a wonderful purity of flavors, anchored by layers of black currants, dusty berries, earth and spice flavors with a subtle touch of mineral. This wine shows off the unique characteristics of Seven Hills Vineyard with power, finesse and a long, persistent finish.

The Year

Mother Nature provided us with a classic wine-growing season. The spring was a little wetter than normal, but this extra moisture did not cause any problems because it was so early in the year. Bud break started around the third week in April, and very warm, sunny days filled the summer. We had plenty of heat units to fully ripen the grapes. The wines from the 2006 vintage have terrific fruit intensity, show great natural acidity and are beautifully balanced.
