Winemaker Notes

A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot.

Cabernet from this 30-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a big shouldered wine with aromas and flavors of blackberry jam. Fruit is the star of the show for our Cold Creek Cabernet!

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Firm and juicy, this old vine Cabernet is loaded with black fruits. With just 1% Merlot in the blend, it’s a generous mouthful of almost-pure Cabernet, layered with licorice, mineral, and intense fruit flavors of currant and cherry.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard was sourced from a site planted in 1973 with the wine aged for 21 months in French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an earthy character as well as aromas of spice box, rose petal, cassis, and black cherry. Fleshy, full-bodied, and mouth-filling, it has layered savory fruit, incipient complexity, plenty of fine-grained tannin, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2021.
