Tasting Notes

WA96

A gorgeous effort from proprietors Chuck and Anne McMinn, this grand cru vineyard situated north of St. Helena, in the sloping foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains has turned out a beautiful, complex, elegant, Chateau Margaux-like Cabernet Sauvignon. This youthful wine offers a dense ruby/purple color, notes of acacia flowers, blueberry and black currant fruit, full body and stunning finesse, charm, purity and equilibrium. The finish is long, fresh, lively and promising.

The Winery

Vineyard 29

Vineyard 29 employs the most careful, patient (albeit time-consuming and labor intensive) techniques to create wines that fully express the potential of their vineyard heritage — their terroir. Applying the Old World theory of “elevage” — raising each vintage as one would raise a child — means giving the vines and the wine alike the height of gentle care and attention. By expressing this care, we strive to create a final product that is the highest representation of the vineyard and the climate in that year. Every piece of advanced machinery at Vineyard 29, beginning in the vineyards, enables us to treat our grapes with tremendous care, thus adhering to old world winemaking ideals through use of advanced modern technologies.
