Winemaker's Notes

Grapes were selected from vineyards in the Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, and Sonoma Valley to craft this lush wine. Rich, red fruit aromas and flavors are complemented by notes of dried herbs and mocha and a lingering finish with smooth tannins. Like most California Cabernets, this is an incredibly flexible food wine and will complement a wide range of pasta dishes and meats, from turkey through to roast beef.

    (From 2001 Vintage) 10% Merlot; 8% Cabernet Franc; 4% Malbec; 2% Petit Verdot. Even with the fairly attractive first fruit notes and complex array of characteristics on display here, this wine is surprisingly short on real depth and density in both nose and mouth. Its curt tannins lend structure while adding to the slight dryness that emerges as the wine finishes.
