TASTING NOTES

81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Opaque, deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, with the scents of Cassis, red plum, cherry, tobacco, cedar, vanilla, green peppercorn spice and smoky mineral notes. Wafts of lavender, hints of sweet herbs. Lifted aromatics, inviting, fresh and intriguing! Ever evolving and revealing nuances. Flavors of vibrant red berries, cassis, blackberry and plum, structured and elegant with balanced acidity. Fresh fruit on the entry with a focused mid-palate. Toasty, sweet oak, tarragon and white pepper frame the fruit and lend structure. Youthful and slow to reveal it's self. This wine finishes strong with supple tannins and bittersweet cocoa. The acid balance makes this wine very food friendly and age worthy.

AWARDS & RATINGS

92 Points - The Tasting Panel, December 2015

Smooth, rich and elegant with plum, blackberry and cassis; supple, generous and long.

91 Points - Wine & Spirits, December 2015

This feels densely packed, its black tannins spiced with oak. However, there's plenty of drive to its acidity, and it opens into a bright cabernet with flavors of black currant, cranberry and bitter chocolate. It's worth aging for another five years or more.

Silver Medal - 2015 Sonoma County Harvest Fair

An easy harvest for reds, wet spring with rains stopping just at flowering set up an extended growing/ripening season with moderate temperatures 80-92°F day time temperature with cool night and foggy mornings, great for slow gentle ripening.
