According to Wine Enthusiast - "2011 was the first vintage for the winery’s new winemaker, Tim Bell, who surely had his hands full in a challenging year. The result is impressive, a medium-bodied, brambly taste of cassis and thyme that offers nice minerality and balance and finishes in black tea."
Winemakers Notes - "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon speaks to the cool growing conditions of the vintage. Late summer rains had us go through an extreme berry selection process to ensure the highest quality fruit. This wine displays beautiful aromatics of bright red cherry, red raspberry and dried thyme qualities that mingle with darker elements of black cherry, espresso and cassis. The palate is full of ripe fruits that mold seamlessly with tannins that are refined and beautifully balanced. Full of nuance and delicate character, this wine will age for an extended period and should only continue to get better with time." 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. 13.5% ABV.
