Winemaker's Notes:

Due to the cool growing season in 2010 we judiciously blended in varieties that matured earlier in the season, like Merlot and Syrah, to enhance and lift the fruit and structure of our Cabernet sources. Both aromatically and on the palate, the wine displays a symphony of bright red fruits led by cherries and raspberries. These engaging aromas are surrounded by hints of sage, lavender, caramel, sandalwood, resin, black olive and the dusty savory herbs one comes to expect from our layered Cabernets. The wine enters the palate sweet and round, lingers on the finish with creamy fine-grained tannins, followed by the signature acidity of the vintageā€”a level of acidity that will certainly allow for greater aging potential for the wines of this substance.
