Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2008 vintage Estate Cabernet Sauvignon's intrinsic aromatic notes of dry sage, black licorice and smoky earth terroir are wrapped in a cloak of dense black cherry and raspberry cream. Layered with provocative nuances of cracked peppercorn, tobacco, aged cinnamon stick, black tea and vanilla bean, this wine is seamlessly knitted together with fine, round tannins, balanced acidity and a brooding, lively finish.
