Winemaker's Notes

This deep ruby-hued offering is comprised of fruit from some of the most select vineyards in our winery's neighborhood blended with selected lots from our exquisite Lindsay Estate Vineyard. The 2006 possesses notable backbone for a wine that is already revealing such abundant fruit upon release. A nose of plum and dusty rose precedes an eminently appealing palate that unfolds with layers of ripe plum and raspberry fruit in perfect balance with earthy notes of bittersweet cocoa and underbrush. The finish offers ripe, silky tannins with a touch of white pepper and cedar. Alcohol 14.7%

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of cola, dried currant and blueberry, sage and fresh earth give this a complex mix of flavors. Delicate and balanced, with subtle flavor nuances that are sharply focused on the finish. Drink now through 2011. 3,028 cases made."
91 Points

"Sporting aromas of black cherries, sweet oak, hints of caramel and toast, and this wine practically demands that you take a big sip without further ado. It is surprisingly dark in color yet does not drift into the weighty, tannic style that its coloring might suggest and, instead, keys on deep, ripe, nicely mannered flavors carried by a supple, plush, almost "posh" sense of richness that furthers the notion that early drinking is entirely appropriate. And, it will age a bit if you put some away."
