    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Estate Cabernet is a great example of the vintage and our site in the Santa Ynez Valley. The moderate temperatures and lack of rainfall coupled with our low-vigor soils and well-exposed terrain created a wine that is ripe, elegant and quite complex. The nose is generous with cassis, plum, vanilla, dusty spice, cedar, tobacco, clove and toffee. The palate is lush, juicy and balanced, with underlying tannins that add grip to the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Except for being just a bit linear, this is a really good Cabernet for the price. It offers rich blackberry, black currant liqueur, anise and cedar flavors that are wrapped into firm tannins. This balance is really impressive. It's thorwing some sediment already, so decant it. Editors' Choice
