Vineyard Notes - Located on a knoll in Napa Valley’s Coombsville region, Meteor Vineyard’s unique combination of elevation, aspect and stony, rich volcanic soil produces some of Napa Valley’s most distinc- tive Cabernet Sauvignon.
Vintage Notes -In 2007, warm spring temperatures led to early bud break with very little rainfall. The summer remained mild with few of the heat spikes typically seen and dry conditions leading to small berries of intense fruit. After a brief interlude of cool the second week of October, Indian summer prevailed, affording us plenty of time to consider the optimal moment for harvest. What crossed the sorting table was as close to perfection as Cabernet Sauvignon gets. Our first glimpse of the wines post fermentation confirmed this. We knew we had something special.
Tasting Notes - “Our 2007 Meteor Vineyard Perseid is deeply colored with a vibrant hue lead- ing towards ruby red violet rim. On the nose, aromas of plum, fresh blackberries & black cherry com- pote mingle with sandalwood, sweet tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. The palate is rich and supple with firm assertive tannins and a complex mineral driven finish.” Dawnine Dyer, Winemaker
