2011 Vintage Notes

The 2011 vintage was very long and cool, perfect for the wines we produce at Cultivar. When choosing the lots to make the 2011, our winemaker Julien Fayard continued to look for characteristics that make Cultivar wines unique. The resulting wines are brighter than the previous vintages in California, with elegant depth of fruit, balance and great structure. Enjoy!

2011 Cultivar Leaky Lake Cabernet Sauvignon

Located just above our Estate Vineyard, on top of the Mayacamas Mountain Range, is Leaky Lake Vineyard. First planted in 2007, the grapes grow on the hillside facing the southeast, resulting in wine with well-developed flavors and structure. The 2011 vintage marks our second single vineyard offering from Cultivar.

Bright red in color, our 2011 Leaky Lake Cabernet has enticing aromas of wild blueberries and cherries that seem to leap from the glass, intertwined with notes of spice, pepper, cedar and a hint of mocha. On the palate, the wine is fruit-forward with dark cherry fruit flavors, smooth tannins and a lengthy finish. Decanting allows the wine’s complex flavors to shine, but this lovely wine will also age well for 2-7 years.
