    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep complex fruit notes of ripe black cherry, French plums and cassis are complemented by violets, baker's spices and a hint of cocoa and dried pipe tobacco. This smooth yet weighty wine possesses a mid-palate density balanced by classic structure, refined tannins and a lengthy finish.

    Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    This wine is another rewarding Cabernet from a winery with a great track record over the years. Blended with some Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it’s dry and ultrasmooth, and while the tannins are thick, they’re sweet and ripe. The blackberry, cherry, blueberry and cassis flavors have a rich, fleshy opulence.

    Bright, fragrant and built around a mix of curranty and slightly berryish fruit with nicely fit nuances of spice and creamy oak, this wine is both fully ripened yet light on its feet. In the mouth, its keen focus on varietal fruit is again augmented by a light berryish note and by rich oakiness in flavors that are continuous, accessible and just tight enough at this writing to suggest further expansion with some four to six years of patient cellaring.
