Vintage: In 2009 we were blessed by a mild spring with light rain, which helped to develop water reservoirs in the vineyard. The rain, paired with cooler temperatures, allowed for a longer hang time resulting in a slow-and-steady growing season.  The relaxed pace growing season was quickly transformed to a fast-paced harvest as early fall rains arrived in the valley.  The grapes that were harvested prior to the heavy rains were well-developed with plenty of ripe flavor. 

Vineyard: Terra Valentine is sources from two estate vineyards that capture the best of Spring Mountain District winegrowing:  The Wurtele Vineyard and the Yverdon Vineyard.  They are distinguished by a diversity of mountain terrain and vines that are well adapted to the environment.  While the mountain sites present challenges – including accessibility, diversity of soils, ripening, and hand labor – they reward the effort in wine filled with intense flavor and color.  Each vineyard, with a unique set of soils, exposures, and microclimates, produces a wine of distinction and personality reflecting the terroir of the estate. 

Tasting: Deep, ripe black currant and blackberry fruit jump out of the glass with licorice and dusty earth.  The full and rich palate coats the mouth with cocoa covered bing cherry and a soft loamy earth round out the incredible length and concentration.

Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot

Vinification: Average of 16 days on skins,with a 2 day cold soak pre-fermentation

Barrel Regime: 22 months in 100% French oak of which 50% were new
