Winemaker Notes - Yet another stellar vintage in a string of odd-year dandies. This primary wine of our production offers a merge of red and black fruits, delicate spiciness from carefully selected American oak barrels, and deep brooding opaque color. A meaty entry gives way to a generous back palate of supple but not shy tannins, a graceful flow across the palate, and a fine, debonaire finish. You'll think you outkicked the coverage on this fine bottle.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Does what California does so well with Cabernet, ripening the fruit and developing delicious berry and cherry flavors. Oak, of course, brings the usual sweetly smoked toast and vanilla notes to this softly tannic wine. Drink it now.
