Winemaker's Notes:

The Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised from vineyards seated in rocky soils and surrounded in warmth; these influences encourage deep root growth and complex flavored grapes. The 2008 vintage is rich in texture and silky tannins. Dark berry and plum flavors introduce the wine followed by hints of tea, cocoa and coffee. A well supported mid palate gives way to a long, soft finish.
