Purchase 2003 Neal Family Vineyards Chafen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

At an elevation of 1,280 feet, this vineyard is located several miles west of the winery and on the lower slopes of Howell Mountain but with a warmer, west facing aspect. This vineyard will be certified organic in 2008.

This is the most gripping wine of the set when fermenting. Now that the tannin profile has mellowed, there is cherry, cigar box, cedar and chocolate in the nose. A very big wine with earthy black fruit, cocoa powder and black licorice flavors. Always one of the most likely to improve with cellaring.
