Winemaker's Notes

What a perfumed, elegant, structured wine, with all the elements of fruit, wood, tannins just in the right place. It shows great tannins, powerful black and red berry fruits, denseness, and a classic, fresh aftertaste.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2006 Vintage) 60% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Merlot; 6% Cabernet Franc; 3% Petit Verdot; 1% Malbec. This curious offering is at once both ripe and slightly herbal in tone with a bias to softness in balance. It never musters more than minimal fruit and comes up a bit dilute on the palate, and we have our doubts about its ability to improve with aging.
