2003 Cabernet Sauvignon, Los Chamizal Vineyards
$85.00

 

Peter Haywood's Los Chamizal Vineyards climb steep walls of a small isolated valley near the town of Sonoma. Recognized as one of Sonoma's best growers, Peter lavishes as much care on his vines as we do on our wine. The partnership of winemaker and grower is no better exemplified than in this blend, made from selected rows exhibiting the best micro-terroir of the vineyard.
This Cabernet has lush flavors over gentle tannins, with ample structure to give it a long life. It will continue to exhibit increased complexity as it ages... the type that collectors clamor for to add to their cellars.
