    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 growing season was in a word - perfect. The weather was dry, warm with lots of sunshine. We started the season a week late in blooming, but caught up as the perfect ripening weather lasted through September. The "tale of two vintages" has to do with the freeze that many vineyards experienced on the night of October 10th. The good news about this event is that most of our grapes were either already picked or had already reached a good level of maturity. It was at that point where we had to get in the rest of the fruit in short order, which we did.

    The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate, ripe, jammy "New World" style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyards in the area are more than a decade old now and showing character and complexity. This lush wine reveals fruit-forward blackberry and cherry flavors and dark fruit aromas.

    Pair with stuffed peppers, blue cheese, duck, beef, veal, lamb, dark chocolate.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh and vibrant, offering a plush mouthful of currant, cherry and roasted beet flavors, finishing with a distinct not of toasted marshmallow. This has depth and lingers gracefully. Drink now through 2018. 70,000 cases made.

    great value, quite bold tasting, to me I didn't taste much other then the overpowering berry flavors but in this case with the great berry taste that is a good thing, finishes well also

    This was a positive encounter that renewed my faith in CSM cabernets. This wine has a big nose with fruit and deep color. The wine is smooth and supple with excellent fruit, subtle oak structure and some vanillan complexities. Very nice for a young wine and a very good value.

    As good as it gets for under $20. Beats lots of Napa entries that cost 50-60 more per bottle!
