2007 Cosmo's Passion / EmmaLily Vineyards

Wine Maker notes

We had a bumper crop in 2007 at our estate vineyard. Almost 200 gallons of wine post fermentation. Cosmos Passion is a Boudreaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 92 % Cab Sauv comprising of 337 and 04 clones. 4% of each Merlot and Cab Franc. We harvest everything at the same time, called a field blend, and remains that way through fermentation, barrel aging and bottling. We used two American oak barrels, one new and one once used for the first 2 yrs and inserted French oak staves for 7 months to add complexity.

Total aging in the Barrel was 32 months.
