Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc.

With deep ruby color, this Cabernet opens with inviting aromas of cherry, blackberry, raspberry, currant and hints of cedar and cocoa. Concentrated flavors of boysenberry, raspberry, red cherry and currant followed by notes of black pepper and vanilla in the long, smooth finish. A rich, full mouth feel with nicely balanced tannins and structure.

This wine pairs well with grilled rib eye or pork chops, steak tartare, chorizo and seafood paella, wild mushroom and scallop risotto, smoked duck sausage over polenta, garlic marinated prime rib, braised lamb shanks, pork or beef barbequed ribs and hearty pasta dishes such as baked rigatoni.

While delicious at an early age, this wine has the potential to be cellared for 10-15 years past the vintage date.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautiful Cabernet. Pretty tannic now, so if you drink, decant, and have it with rich, oily meats and cheeses. But the heart of black cherries, and cassis, and the overall balance, enable this wine to develop over the next 6-8 years."

Beautiful cherry color; Inviting nose of smokey oak, cedar, cocoa and red fruit; Full-bodied Cab...rich on the palate with cassis, currants and hints of spicey oak...all very nicely balanced; Tannins were a bit strong at first, but decanted (w/Soiree) for about an hour and the fruit really opened up; Long, elegant finish with just a hint of chocolate. This is a wine you can feel confident serving....everyone will enjoy it!

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
