Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) #x Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008"Superrich, smooth and creamy. A seductive style that balances ripe, concentrated currant, cherry, fresh earth, mineral and sage notes with toasty, cedary oak. Ends with a powerful yet elegant finish that keeps pumping out the flavors. Fine-grained tannins bode well for the future. Drink now through 2015."Wine Spectator96 Points

    95 pts Wine Spectator, 93 pts International Wine Cellar. WS review: Has gained with age; still big, bold, ripe and expressive, with tiers of juicy plum, blackberry, chocolate brownie and espresso, yet for all its girth it's elegant and graceful, ending with a touch of kirsch. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2019. 650 cases made.
