What's New
Chateau Chenery's most recent vintage is a 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Huntley Peak Vineyard on
the UC Davis Field Station near Hopland, Mendocino County. Our 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon was
bottled in February 2007 and shows great potential. Again some of the same black cherry fruit as the
2003 Bronze Medal winning Cabernet from the same vineyard. The 2004 Cab, however, shows brighter
acid and better mouthfeel then the 2003 vintage. It will age much longer. Our 2007 wines are in the barrel
and gently aging in French oak. We have sourced Merlot from Sonoma County that shows great promise.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is from 2000' elevation on the west side of Mt. Veeder.
