Winemaker's Notes:

Our Haystack Cabernet is true to its mountain origins, boasting great structure, intense purple color and violet aromatics. Firm tannins are gracefully balanced by luscious blackberry and blueberry flavors with nuances of coffee, baking spice and cocoa. This is a wine that I think has incredible ageability, but, like all my wines, should drink well upon release too.
