Winemaker's Notes

#79 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Intense ruby red, this wine has subtle hints of exotic spices and ripe red fruit on the nose. On the palate it is plush, warm and full, with persistent silky and ripe tannins in the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Already harmonious and supple, this red offers black cherry, raspberry and floral flavors, showing both intensity and finesse. Bright and focused, with refined tannins and a lingering aftertaste that echoes berry and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,000 cases made."
