Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The 2011 is certainly a candidate for one of my favorite vintages ever, displaying the entire range of Cabernet fruit flavors from black cherry and blueberry through plum, cassis and blackberry with cameos played by black raspberry and lingonberry, shored up by bracing natural acidity and firm and grippy, but velvety, tannins. A wonderful mineral streak and forest-floor earthiness run up the middle and a precocious violet perfume enhances the aromas. Grace notes include cocoa, espresso and savory sage, thyme, allspice and coriander. It feels supple and textural in the mouth- luscious.

    sleek and smooth taste and a bit dry with good tannins and a hint of sweetness ( fruit? chocolate? cinnamon?)
