Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) Classic Cabernet in every sense of the word! Cassis, black cherry, tobacco briar and toasty, vanilla oak are only the beginning. Jammy fruit flirts with bitter chocolate, and the whole is complemented by a violet-scented bouquet. After ten years of production, this Cabernet has hit its stride and each vintage claims its own set of admirers.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    Strident ripeness and intense oak are the two legs upon which this bottling is somewhat perilously balanced, and convincing Cabernet character never quite comes into play. Fairly rich, but also tannic, tangy and shot through with peculiar suggestions of dill, the wine is more enigma than solid success and its future is far from certain.
