"67 displays extraordinarily complex aromas of cassis, pipe tobacco, sandalwood and wild boar brush . On the palate, the wine is exuberant, with fresh cassis, blackberry and cocoa tones The integrated fruit is framed by fine-grained tannins and rewards you with a clean finish."
"In 2007, we decided to produce a true "Happy Canyon" blend. Made from predominately Bordeaux varietals, we sought to create a blend that captures the deep, complex and soulful character of our vineyard. Sixty-Seven is the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and the driving force in this blend. We chose lots specifically selected from the estate vineyard for their lively fruit and bold character." - Winery
"Applying modern techniques to a time tested process, we are able to sort out and eliminate virtually all green fruit and raisins using a shaking table fitted with an air-blade. To bring an even greater sense of harmony and balance to the wine, we have begun to co-ferment lots of Cabernet and Cabernet Franc with Merlot, capitalizing on our vineyard's capability to produce uniform and slowly ripened tannins as a result of its extended growing season. After a three to five day cold soak, the must undergoes a moderately warm, native yeast fermentation." - Winery
"Conditions during bloom time were ideal, with moderate temperatures and an absence of our normal winds, and flowering completed in less than a week. Consistent ripening of fruit was slow and steady allowing us to pick at the peak in terms of flavor, aroma, tannin and basic parameters. Berry size was small, smaller than we have seen in years, and the fruit developed intense varietal flavors with rich, mouth-filling tannins." - Winery
