    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose is sweet, focused and pure with ripe blackberry, raspberry and currant aromatics and an underlying sense of minerality. The palate is classically styled with pretty fruit and ripe tannins. We used about 40% new oak with this wine, mostly French with a tiny bit of Hungarian with a low to medium toast to lift the fruit. The result is a delicious Cabernet. It's a classically styled Rutherford Cabernet notable for its faceted complexity, purity of fruit, and outstanding balance. Of course the best is yet to come and this wine will age gracefully over the next decade.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Completely satisfying on every level. Kudos to the winery for releasing a wine this dry, complex and delicious, at such a good price. Easy to drink, yet sophisticated and elegant.
