2001 Caravina Cabernet 750

2001 Caravina Cabernet 750

TASTING NOTES

Rustic and dark, the 2001 Caravina opens aromatically showcasing tobacco, Earl Grey tea, and melted black licorice. Old World in style, this wine suggests a wonderfully developed Italian Chianti.

RATINGS

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (Dec. 2003) - 88 points
"The 2001 Caravina reveals some rustic, hard tannin in the finish, but there is a beautiful bouquet of fruits intermixed with tobacco leaf, loamy soil, and roasted meats. Medium-bodied and ruggedly tannic... [t]here is a lot going on."

VINEYARD NOTES

Seavey's third estate-produced Caravina, the 2001, was made from grapes that came from vines planted in several different locations of the south-facing hillside vineyard. This year's growing season was a bit of a roller coaster with an early spring, a surprise frost and early heat spikes. But the weather evened out and August cooled to near perfect temperatures with cool nights. The grapes were harvested during the first three weeks of October.

PRODUCTION NOTES

Winemaking followed classic Bordeaux methods. Harvested at 24 Brix, the juice remained in contact with the skins for an average of 14 days. Malolactic fermentation and aging were accomplished in French oak barrels (50% new oak). The Caravina was bottled in June 2003.
