2005 Meteor Vineyard Special Family Reserve- 3 Pack

2005 Meteor Vineyard Special Family Reserve- 3 Pack

Our Special Family Reserve represents the absolute finest fruit from Meteor Vineyard.  Hand selected by the row and cluster from a rock strewn section planted to Clone 7 on Saint George rootstock, barrel aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months and then bottle aged for an additional year prior to release.  Powerful and focused, our inaugural Special Family Reserve release is quintessential Meteor; color is a vibrant, violet tinged deep red. Bold red cherry aromas become three dimensional with layers of cedar and cocoa. Plush ripe fruit tannins and elegant oak tannins combine to support the muscular fruit.  95 cases

From the Vineyard - "In the southern Napa Valley 2005 can be characterized by a long growing season, even maturation and an abundant crop. A normal spring and fine weather during bloom set the stage for this extraordinary vintage. May was unusually wet and soil moisture remained high into the summer. A long and relatively moderate growing season followed, ideal for flavor and color development. Ripening continued throughout October and we harvested between October 13 and November 12." Mike Wolf, Vineyard Manager

From the Sommelier - "The 2005 vintage was the perfect confluence of a long even growing season and an abundant harvest. The resulting wines were textbook Napa Valley Cabernet; powerful and fruit driven with ripe, firm tannins allowing for great ageability. It will be a pleasure to revisit these wines after 10-15 years to see all of the potential come together in a seamless package." Jason Alexander, Sommelier and General Manager
