Winemaker's Notes:

This elegant and opulently spiced 2009 Reserve Cabernet is sourced from a small collection of hillside and benchland vineyards rooted in the Oak Knoll and Calistoga appellations. Infused with exotic oak, cocoa and clove spices this blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot is powerfully aromatic. Sweet black currant and boysenberry flavors gradually take the backseat to a more muscular mid-palate framed with sinewy tannins and baker's chocolate.
