    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Gros Verdot.

    Rich and powerful, our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon unleashes ripe cassis, blackberry and dark fruit character. "This wine is built for the cellar," says Winemaker Mike Westrick. "Its classic varietal expression is intensely focused and concentrated, with muscular tannins that carry the fruit effortlessly right through the long finish."

    Asian spices (especially Chinese five-spice), olive and warm oak tones heighten the aromas and permeate the full, expansive flavors. This wine's firm—but not aggressive—tannins and deep fruit flavors stand up to the richest entrées.

    Critical Acclaim:

    If slow to start, somewhat backward and bound up in lots of tough tannin, this very deep, well-extracted Cabernet is a very serious wine of considerable content and one that is meant for the cellar. Almost brooding just now and only beginning to find the first signs of complexity, it displays tenacious black currant fruit from front to back, and its fruit emerges unscathed from its head-on collision with crunching, back-palate tannins. Find a cool, quiet place in the cellar and set this one aside for a good eight to ten years.
