2007 La Croix (the cross)
Alder Springs Vineyard
Fresh strawberries and luscious framboise aromas and flavors fill a generous mouthfeel that plays against a backdrop of dark fruit and licorice with a long toffee finish. Contrast and intensity characterize this “Right Bank” style Bordeaux blend named for the unique hybrid-cross descendant of a female Magnificent Hummingbird and male Anna’s Hummingbird born at the winery. Decant in its first year to enjoy now and over the next 8-10 years.
60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. 75 cases produced.

2007 UltraViolet Claret
Alder Springs Vineyard
Aromas of mint, chocolate, and baking spices introduce intense black and dark red fruit flavors that meld into a sweet middle palate impression of black fruit, currants, and dark chocolate. This well-balanced, deep and concentrated wine exhibits a mouth-coating texture that finishes long in a mix of graphite, dusty mint, chocolate, and tar. Drink over the next 10 years.
50% Merlot 41% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Petit Verdot 3% Cabernet Franc. 150 cases produced.

2007 Cabernet Franc
Alder Springs Vineyard
Concentrated perfumes of dark raspberries, licorice, and violets preface a liqueur-like Bordeaux fruit intensity that is full-bodied but not heavy in the mouth. This sophisticated wine offers a lengthy palate of dark varietal fruit that extends into a long persistent finish of blackstrap, tar, and supple tannins. Enjoy today and over the decade to come.
100% Cabernet Franc. 100 cases produced.
