I recently enjoyed Richard Anwyl’s new book titled “Casey Flat Ranch: Images of the American West”, with spectacular photographs of this famous and historical Ranch where some of the finest red wines are being made on California’s north coast. This wine is different than the last two vintages as it is more on the elegant side; it’s incredibly voluptuous and silky. While I think this wine certainly has long-term aging potential, it’s drinking so delicious now; it’s hard to not enjoy it right now. I first sampled this wine with winemaker Laura Barrett in barrel in January 2014 and again finished in April 2014 and the wine was even more delicious. This picturesque Vineyard sits on a 2,000 ft. rocky mountain slope. The winery is located about 22 miles from Napa Valley’s St. Helena appellation. Owner Allison Morey is dedicating incredible resources to make sure each vintage is better than the next and focusing on tiny yields and only using the very best fruit from their Estate property. 2011 turned out to be a solid vintage in this unique appellation as they had only just over an inch of rain from early June through their harvest on October 31st and had no rot and gorgeous fruit. It is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc and Syrah. A purple hue with red highlights. A refined and suave nose of black raspberry, kirsch and red flowers with mocha. Smooth with beautiful satin lined fruit on the palate including black raspberry, mocha, milk chocolate, toasty vanilla oak, incense and crème de cassis. 1,260 cases were produced. Enjoy with Roast Beef, leg of lamb with mint jelly, Veal chops, hearty chicken dishes and chocolate mousse.

Tasting Notes
Dark fruit aromas - blueberry, plum, with hints of cassis and spice. The palate is balanced and elegant with firm tannins in the middle and well-integrated oak. The wine has great length and the brighter fruits carry through to the finish.

Vintage Notes

The spring of 2011 was another cool season with late rains. At Casey Flat Ranch we had just over 40 inches of rain, the last of it falling into early June. It was a long, cold frost season and by late April it was clear that we were even further behind what we considered a late year in 2010. The summer was mild, with very few days reaching 100 degrees. As in 2010, this was an ideal growing season for Casey Flat Ranch. We were able to slow down our ripening process and hang our red varieties well into the month of October. For the very first time, our fruit weathered a rainstorm, when over an inch of rain fell in early October. Unlike the troubles in the Napa and Sonoma regions, we had no threat of rot in any of our blocks. After the rain, we saw a sunny second half of October and harvested our last block on October 31st. Once again, due to the cool, late season we were able to extend hang time and harvest at optimal flavor and tannin ripeness.
