Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) This is classic Cabernet Sauvignon from our rugged hillsides, exuding dramatic, rich color, high-toned, elegant aromas and full, refined flavors of dark cherry, cassis, espresso, sweet vanilla and wet earth with enticing rose pedal, cranberry, blueberry, oregano and sage. The lush, mouthfilling complexity in your glass is completed with ripe, smooth-textured tannins and a persistent finish that won’t let go.

    This comparatively polished, fully developed wine is both open and well-appointed with fruit at this point. It is supple and rounded in feel with scattered suggestions of olives, loam and tea running its length, and if fairly mature, it is in no danger of fading away soon. Originally reviewed at **.
