Winemaker's Notes

The first word that comes to mind to describe this wine is luscious. This proprietary blend has exquisite fruit and soft, silky tannins. Both qualities speak to the wine's roots in the Alexander Valley. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon with 12 percent Merlot and 12 percent Cabernet Franc - all grown on Forrest Tancer's T-bar-T vineyard in the northeast foothills of the Alexander Valley. The percentages are identical to the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, but like two diamonds of the same size and carat weight … this release is the more dazzling because it is made entirely from the finest barrels cherry picked from the vintage.

Food Pairing: Sliced New York strip steak, pepper steak with french fries, grilled rack of venison served with a fresh onion tart, blue cheeses like our current favorite Humbolt Fog.
