    Winemaker's Notes:

    Nearly opaque, magenta-ruby color. Strong, sweet cassis, blackberry, roasted chestnut and herbal aromas are framed by definitive but not overarching vanilla-oak scents providing additional nuance. Ripe and sweet blackberry cabernet flavors show succulent fruit and mid-palate texture, with full body and ample mouthfeel. Firm but ripe tannins add structural support in the finish. An enjoyable and fleshy wine now, it should age well for two decades or more.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An extraordinary wine, dense, rich and earthy, with broad, plush tannins and tiers of complex currant, earth, cedar, black cherry, mineral and anise flavors. Keeps a tight focus on the long, rich, detailed aftertaste.

    Wine Spectator

    A profoundly deep nose of red and black fruit, with cedar, ginger and nutmeg. The sense of balance and grace is sublime, as layers of cassis, plum and cinnamon keep unfolding. The chewy finish is lengthy and elegant, and it should be held for no less than five years. This bottling honors its pedigree as California’s first classic Cabernet.
