Winemaker's Notes

Our 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses inky color that is saturated to the rim. The nose is of ripe black fruits, cassis, and balsam fir. The wines abundant tannin hide themselves in the wines excellent balance and long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, supple and fleshy, a lovely Cabernet that spills over with plum-scented berry and espresso flavors that linger enticingly on the rich, polished finish. The oak is present but not overwhelming. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot."
93 Points

"Bursting with fragrant, powerful berries and spice, this wine still shows the edges of youth, with the new oak a bit jagged and the tannins slightly green and chalky. But all it needs is time (or air!) and there is no denying that this is a jammy, juicy, just plain delicious mouthful of wine with a masterful hand at the wheel. "
