    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Haystack Cabernet is true to its mountain origins, boasting great structure, intense purple color and violet aromatics. Firm tannins are gracefully balanced by luscious blackberry and blueberry flavors with nuances of coffee, baking spice and cocoa. This is a wine that I think has incredible ageability, but, like all my wines, should drink well upon release too.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich, dense and plush, marked by ripe dark berry, currant and blackberry flavors. Full-bodied, intense and focused, at points both plush and persistent. Best from 2012 through 2023. 710 cases made.

    The dense ruby/purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Haystack Vineyard, a high elevation site on Atlas Peak, exhibits more earth and minerality as well as intense cassis and blackberry notes in the slightly more fragrant bouquet. This rich, full-bodied, impressive Cabernet will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and keep for 15-20.

    The Wine Advocate

    The tannins stand front and center in this mountain wine, but they’re so finely textured, you hardly notice them. They glide over the palate, carrying along ultraripe blackberry flavors. A firm grounding of minerals provides additional structure. This rich Cabernet should develop bottle complexity over the next eight years.
