Winemaker's Notes

Our 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon epitomizes the rich character and soft, approachable tannins of the vintage. With the seasons long hang time the small berries reached the desired state of ripeness where the tannins become very soft and supple. Even in its youth, this Reserve wine has tremendous fruit expression, depth, and a velvety texture. The outstanding natural balance, enhanced by gentle vinification, promises great ageing potential. Filet mignon with shiitake mushrooms, accompanied by a gratin of potatoes with white truffle oil, is one of our favorite pairings. It is also elegant served with a cheese course, such as aged Gouda with toasted almonds.
