Teachworth Napa Valley 2008: Manzanita Hill Vineyard; Rattlesnake Ridge Vineyard and the Estate Blend
Harvest of the 2008 vintage came on Saturday, Sept 13th the day Lehman Bros. went bankrupt and Hurricane “IKE” flooded Galveston Island with 13 feet of storm surge. Galveston is our other home & business.
Phil Steinschriber of Diamond Creek fame is our winemaker for this vintage, & once again produced three distinctly different tasting cabs.
The fruit at crush was ripe and succulent with a fabulously dark ruby color and a nose of luscious red fruit that lingers on the palate. Very small quantity produced.
