Winemaker's Notes:

A dry summer, a small crop and careful thinning in the vineyard gave us one of our most concentrated Cabernets to date. Rich, thick flavors of ripe, even dried, blackberries mix with vanilla, caramel and toasty ok flavors, and the ever-present smoky, olive signature of Cabernet fruit. Not subtle, but well balanced, this wine promises interesting development for at least five to ten years of bottle age. Blend
88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
