Greetings Friends,
The 2008 vintage in Napa reminded us that Mother Nature is always in charge. Wind and rain struck during flower. There was frost on April 15th. Drought conditions continued for the third year in a row. All of this ensured that we didn’t grow soft after the easy 2007 vintage. While we were having our character built, the grapes were developing character as well. In my opinion, our small crop of 2008 Baconbrook harvested on September 5th surpassed the quality of the lauded 2007 vintage.
Vintners Note:
The 2008 Baconbrook Cabernet is true to its Spring Mountain heritage. Rich and layered, this inky black wine explodes with wonderful currant and berry flavors, complemented by strong coffee, mint, herb, mineral, and forest floor. Balanced, but with a massive structure, this wine will reward cellar aging for 20+ years.
The bad news: we were only able to make 140 cases of this gem. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to give our wonderful single vineyard, small production Cabs from the Napa Valley a try. Shipping of your order should begin towards the end of October.
Online ordering is at http://www.matchvineyards.com/store/
With warmest regards,
Randy Sloan
