Winemaker's Comments

ARIEL Chardonnay has a distinctive combination of buttery apple and butterscotch characteristics, combined with a toasty French oak bouquet, and should continue to develop complexity as it ages. It can be enjoyed immediately, or held three to five years. Enjoy ARIEL Chardonnay with richer seafood, veal, duck and cream pasta dishes.

2007 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement either inland or seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant – keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool at night, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity. For Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2007 harvest demonstrated absolutely ideal growing conditions. Sparse winter rainfall, followed by a moderately warm spring and summer produced exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe, pure varietal fruit flavors. Our passionate commitment to our red wines from Cypress Vineyards is to preserve and showcase the alluring black currant and cherry fruit flavors resplendent in grapes grown in the Central Coast.

Winemaker's Comments

The 2007 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet is a very dark purple in color with youthful red hues. The wine has an attractive mix of jammy red fruits, black cherries, black currants, violets and spicy cigar box oak aromas. The palate is very plump and rich with a mouthful of varietal Cabernet fruitiness from start to finish. A Cabernet serious enough for the connoisseur, yet quaffable for anyone who enjoys a good glass of red wine, the 2007 Cypress Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon would be the perfect pairing for a roasted leg of lamb, or osso bucco. This wine should be enjoyed in its youth or cellared up to five years.

2008 Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay

The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement either inland or seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity and flavor. For Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from Monterey Bay and down the Monterey appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating richly flavored Chardonnay fruit with grapefruit and other citrus flavors paired with peach and tropical flavors. Harvesting and pressing in the vineyard at night ensures the preservation of these bright fruit flavors.


Technical Data

Origin: 85% Monterey Arroyo Seco, 15% Monterey County
