Winemaker's Notes

Instant gratification for Cab lovers. Intense aromatics of classic cabernet fruit, cassis and cigars. Great wine, great year. If only they could all be like this! Drink now-2020.

Critical Acclaim

"This is still quite dark in color, right to the rim, and it overflows with complex aromas of flowers, herbs, tobacco, cassis and subtle oaking. Firmly structured, but the tannins are ripe, not hard, while the flavors bring waves of cassis, plum, tobacco and vanilla without ever seeming overly rich or jammy. Drink this wonderfully harmonious offering from 2008–2015."
