(From 2011 Vintage) Fresh apples, lime, yeast, tea and dried leaves on a nose that smells a bit sweet. Very high acid help to cut through the noticeable sweetness on the palate.
(From 2013 Vintage) Rich, smooth and elegantly textured, this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon shows fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and cassis that melt with notes of cocoa and toasty oak. Linger over the soft tannins and the long, smooth and silky finish. We harvest grapes from California’s premier Central Coast vineyards and use cool, slow fermentation to maintain the wine’s aroma while heightening its complexity. Frequent pump-overs extract the soft tannins and color, which are preserved by pressing the skins and must just before the wine reaches complete dryness. Aging in premium American oak barrels adds richness and complexity.
