Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Full bodied and richly textured, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of black currant, sandalwood, white pepper, and cocoa, with a smooth, lingering finish. If you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for up to a decade and patience will reward you.

Winemaker's Notes

The smaller yield proved to be of good fortune as red wines are richly concentrated including our 1996 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. A brilliant and deep violet hew makes way for an abundance of blueberry and dried-cherry fruit in the nose with a wisp of gardenia, candied citrus peel and star anise. Firm bodied with moderate tannins enveloping layers of flavors that are fruitful like blueberry and currant yet complimented with a touch of chocolate-caramel and a slight note of roasted nuts.
