    Winemaker's Notes:

    We chose to make a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon rather than blend in other varietals so that we could create a real terroir wine that demonstrates true varietal character. Our 2006 Director's Cut Cabernet offers a rich perfume of plums, cherries, wild berries and cedar as well as dark, decadent flavors of blueberries, cassis, cocoa and spice. This vintage experienced a 20% reduction in crop yield. Having less fruit automatically enables the grapes to develop more concentration, which is exactly what happened here. Not only are the wine's tannins sweet and mature from the extended growing season, the flavors are ripe, lush and prolonged on the finish because of the fruit's immense concentration.

    This wine will drink well now while young, but it also has the structure to develop even more complexity in years to come.

    It is impossible to review this wine correctly because it was delivered to me hot. The gel pack had burst from the heat and the wine was not as it should be. I will need to buy it in prime condition to make a real evaluation.
