Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) This wine has a deep garnet color and a nose that shows bright red currant and black mulberry fruit, backed by cedary oak tones. Spicy, vanilla flavors unfold on the palate with cigar box and a hint of pencil shavings, so typical of Cabernet Sauvignon. Full bodied with a smooth tannin structure holding lots of promise for further improvement with careful cellaring (up to five years). A great accompaniment to rare roast beef, leg of lamb or hard cheeses.
