    Winemaker's Notes:

    Soft ripe blackberries and cooked black current dominate the initial aroma both on the mouth and nose. The seamless texture of vanilla bean and holiday spices combined with rich black fruit and cedar are evidence of true balance. There are firm tannins that are softened by bright acidity. Finally, there is an explosion of ripe raspberries and blueberries, with a hint of tobacco and pepper on the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Nicely oaky but well done, showing lots of creamy mocha-espresso flavors woven among the dark berry, cedar and spice notes, with a full-bodied, saturated finish. Drink now through 2022.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious entry-level effort that delivers classic Cabernet character with plenty of black fruits, cassis, wild herbs and earthy qualities all showing on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, rich and balanced, with good acidity and ripe tannin, it's a great intro into the estate and should drink nicely for 3-5 years. Drink now-2018.

    The Wine Advocate

    The cool 2011 growing season contributed a graceful balance to this cabernet, the fruit sourced from a handful of vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles. It feels leaner than the typical Paso cab, and its flavors of cedar and black currant are classic and restrained, with a forestry streak that adds sophistication.
