The wine is fruit and earth dominant, with a remarkable array of wild red and black fruits grounded with leather, herb, and spice components. It is surprisingly rich and accessible at release, but has the underlying tannin and lifted acidity to pair well with food.

Details

WE 91 Pts, WS 90 Pts, WA 90 Pts, IWC 90 Pts, AG 90 Pts - Winemaker Notes - After careful vinification in small, open top fermenters, the wine was aged for 16 months in a selection of French, American, Hungarian, and Russian oaks which contribute broad aromatic components of confection and baking spices. The wine is fruit and earth dominant, with a remarkable array of wild red and black fruits grounded with leather, herb, and spice components. It is surprisingly rich and accessible at release, but has the underlying tannin and lifted acidity to pair well with food. It will improve for 4-6 years from vintage date, yet is capable of cellaring up to 10 years.

According to the Wine Enthusiast - The Cabernet is stiffened up with small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cab Franc and Malbec, resulting in a firm, herbal, but very well-balanced Bordeaux-style blend. There’s compact cassis fruit, streaked with light stem, earth and herb. This is a wine that should improve with bottle age through 2019.

According to Stephen Tanzer - Bright ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice, menthol and violet. More tightly coiled and backward than the Seven Hills Vineyard Merlot, showing distinctly darker flavors of black cherry, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very healthy acidity energizes the middle palate. The finish is distinctly saline, offering firm tannic spine and lingering dark fruit notes.
