2000 Carneros - Truchard

This wine follows in the footsteps of our very successful 1999 bottling from the Truchard vineyard,and if anything sets the standard for quality higher still.The 2000 vintage gave us ideal ripening conditions without waves of heat pushing sugars up faster than flavors in the grape could mature.The resulting wine displays rich dark cherry aromas accented with notes of violets and spice, supported by toast and faint smoke from the barrel.In the mouth the wine is beautifully integrated,with oak supporting rather than dominating,and fruit lingering well into the finish.With a combination of balance,suppleness,and concentrated fruit flavors,this wine should age gracefully for the next five years.
