(From 2012 Vintage) Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. The sweet vanilla character derived from 22 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine
(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a beautiful dark cherry color in the glass with aroma notes of plums, dried cherries, and toasted hazelnuts. The mouthfeel is round and juicy with firm full tannins, rich fruit flavors of huckleberry and a dried cherry sweetness fade into the warm spicy finish with hints of blackberry.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2003 Vintage) Solidly varietal aromas of dried grasses and hay, melon and citrus are moderately rich and just a little on the pungent side. Slightly rounded yet also a touch narrow and pinched, the wine picks up a stony, minerally edge and closes with a hint of bitterness in its otherwise mildly fruity aftertaste.
