(From 1996 Vintage) Deep, garnet hued wine full and rich cedar notes in the nose, leading to harmonious, full-bodied flavors of ripe, dark fruits and spice. Integrated with toasty woodnotes. Elegant.
(From 2013 Vintage) This wine delivers everything we are looking for from a great vintage. The color is an inky purple hue and the wine has aromas of black fruits, baking spices, dark chocolate and leather. The palate is rich and complex, full of flavors of berry pie, mocha, cedar, black pepper and vanilla toast. The texture is creamy, round and full with well structured tannins that are approachable now or will cellar well for decades. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 1% Petite Sirah, aged 18 months in 25% new oak barrels.
