Grand Reserve is a masterful blend of our mountain, ridge, hillside and benchland grapes grown along California's cool coastal appellations. We hand select grapes from our best estate vineyards and then monitor, taste and hand-hold each individual lot throughout the winemaking process. Each lot is kept separate, barrel-aged and handcrafted —boutique winery style. Our winemakers have an unmatched palate of flavors, toast levels and terroir nuances from which they masterfully blend these exemplary rich, deep and complex wines.
This Cabernet has distinct flavors of black currant,
blackberry, blueberry and cassis with enticing
aromas of mocha and nutmeg. Notes of smoke, cedar
and tobacco leaf round out the lingering finish.
—Randy Ullom, Winemaster.
The 2007 Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Dense creme de cassis notes intermixed with fruitcake, coffee bean, and tobacco leaf are found in this fat, fleshy wine, which displays excellent purity, density, and richness. It should drink well for 15 or more years.
Serious Cabernet, rich and complex and full bodied, made from Knights Valley and Alexander Valley fruit, with a few grapes from Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder. Dense and tannic now, but high toned, with waves of black currants, black cherries and oak. A good price for a Cabernet of this quality. Drink now–2012.
Fresh cherry flavors fill this wine with ample fruit, soft and plush in the middle, juicy in the end. It’s a finely made cabernet with a gentle structure holding all the elements in place. For flank steak.
