The Philanthropist

Profile: 

Complex dark chocolate, coffee and cola aromas overlap generous black currant fruit accentuated with orange zest and minerals. Velvety flavors of black cherry and ripe plums provide a juicy entry that finishes chalky in its youth. Decanting or additional bottle age will allow the cocoa powder grip to release its hold offering instead a long, intriguing finish layered with vanilla, milk chocolate and berry jam. The big tannin structure in our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings offer a chance for cellaring a magnificent vintage.

The Altruist

Profile: 

When allowed to breathe, wet rock austereness opens into blackberry jam, vanilla and nutmeg oak with Satsuma plums. Caramel bread pudding aromas are layered with the floral highlights of violets and hints of black pepper and licorice. Ripe blackberry jam fruit is wrapped in youthful tannins which will demand extended bottle aging in the short-term. Decanting (or further bottle age) will develop the rich, sexy texture that accompanies the alluringly lengthy finish found in our Calistoga Estate wines.
