Jamie Peterson’s Vintaged Views
This is our most terroir-driven wine: a Peterson wine that shouts out its origin with every sip. Our Bradford Mountain vineyards produce wine grapes with a unique and very recognizable minerality. That expression or sense of place reaches its apex in the Bradford Mountain Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The intensity of the Cabernet Sauvignon is complemented with exotic spice from Cabernet Franc and wonderful aromatics from Petit Verdot, creating a wine that offers layer upon layer of flavors and aromas. Though big and bold, this is still a wine with balance and finesse. It is not one of those over-oaked and over-extracted creations that are currently the rage with some wine critics yet have no place on the table, nor the potential for successful bottle aging. This is a wine that will definitely benefit from both bottle age and/or decanting to allow the wine to open and reveal all of its depth and complexity.

Tasting Notes
The 2013 growing season produced wines with impressive depth and complexity, and our Bradford
Mountain Estate Vineyard Cabernet is Peterson’s poster child for this vintage. The tightly wound nose
offers alluring aromas of black currant, crushed rock, forest floor and sweet oak. From the first sip, savor the classic Bradford Mountain characteristics from the rich flavors and buoyant acidity to the classic elegance and understated style. On the palate, brambly wild blackberry, dark cherry and cedar mingle with an underlying mineral essence and a trace of eucalyptus. Vanillin oak wraps the flavors while gently adding structure and strength. A wine with this finesse deserves to be paired with a perfectly prepared Beef Wellington, or a garlic-herb encrusted rack of lamb.
