Elegant, balanced and approachable with bright floral notes, hints of currant, spice, dried berries and a touch of oak to smooth, bind and elevate the flavors. Complex and subtle, revealing itself over time.
"Tight and cedary, with mineral, sage and oak flavors that overshadow the dried currant, spice and black cherry fruit. Well-structured and focused. Best from 2010 through 2016. 700 cases made."
"Made from the winery's little vineyard on Atlas Peak, this 100% Cabernet needs time to come around. It doesn't show the voluptuous approachabiltiy of the 2005 or the 2007, which will be released next year. It's fairly acidic and tannic. But there's a luscious core of blackberries and black currants. Try after 2012, and might be a very long-lived wine.
