Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Deep cherry red. A wine with tremendous aromatic complexity and a heightened expression of Cabernet fruit. Highly concentrated and persistent on the palate. Fresh, with smooth, ne, and delicate tannins and excellent balance.

    (2012 Vintage) Suave and refined, with rich, dense flavors of dried berry, dark plum, rose petal and bramble. Offers fine-grained tannins and accents of green olive. Finishes with hints of hot stone, dried beef and white pepper. Complex.

    (2014 Vintage) A ripe, rich and full-bodied red, with powerful flavors of dark cherry, plum pudding and currant that feature a lush creaminess. Firm and savory midpalate, ending with a long and refined finish that shows mineral and cocoa butter accents, supported by dusty tannins. Drink now through 2024. 7,850 cases made.–KM

    (2007 Vintage) "Still a touch tight, but dense, focused and layered, with well-integrated structure underneath loam, blackberry, espresso, tobacco and sage notes. The long finish has nice drive, with the loam edge stretching out. This has the poise and balance for cellaring. Drink now through 2017. 8,900 cases made."
