Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The 2012 Symmetry is a luxurious bouquet of blackberries, currants, cassis and crushed lavender which unfold on the palate with silky layers of black fruits, dark chocolate covered espresso beans and baking spices. This wine is rich, harmonious and elegant with a long, lingering finish.

    Peppery oaky nose on the 2011, maple candy on the 2012. 2011 has more black and green pepper with a rich, lush finish. Big fruit and surprising power. 2012 has some of that peppery spice, but it's more controlled, with much more evident maple, Caramel, and vanilla. Both are excellent.

    (2007 Vintage) A great Bordeaux-style wine that can stand proudly next to Napa bottlings that cost far more. It’s mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with the other four permitted Meritage varieties, and there seems to be lots of new, sweetly toasted oak. The blackberry, cherry, red currant, mocha and bacon flavors are delicious, but even better is the tannic structure. It’s soft and alluring enough to drink now.
