#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot.
This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon delivers intense
fruit aromas mingled with chocolate cherry and slight mint aromatics. Cocoa and black cherry flavors lead to a complex, perfectly balanced palate of wood and fruit flavors that cumulate on the lingering finish.
Ripe in flavor, with a vivid array of black currant, blackberry, violet, black tea and black pepper aromas and flavors that zoom through to a long, expressive finish. Shows subtlety in the layers of complex flavor against a refined structure. Tannins are present but nicely contained. Best from 2010 through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 6,000 cases made."
