A lighter red with hints of a rustic orange and purple hue greet the eye upon initial inspection. Bright red fruits including ripe cranberry, cherry and strawberry, orange zest along with a sweet prune appear on the palate. Delicious leathery, musky, black licorice mixture envelopes the nose, followed by light red fruit tart. The acidity is mild but accountable. The barrel influence in the mouth is delicate but noticeable as it adds both tannins and a touch of spice.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
We made its first Cabernet in 1999. It was the first wine to be on the cover and has been a real hit since. This wine is a terroir driven Cabernet from gravelly, alluvial soils; very much like the gravel beds. Hence, the best Cabernet came from the main vineyard, with lots of gravel, grown on a Bordeaux Clone. Our goal with this wine is to showcase not only the best, but our most terroir driven Cabernet.

Winemaker Notes
Ruby red in color with intense aromas of dried olives and blackberries with underlying mineral and tea-like hints of espresso. Powerful, dusty Cabernet flavors hit you along with concentrated blackberry fruit flavors on the palate. The finish is clean and has a purity to it that is framed with ripe tannins that rein in the fruit.
