Winemaker Notes

The color is a deep purple with the flavor of espresso, sweet melted licorice, black currant jam, tobacco and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with super refined tannins There is great intensity, superb purity, and a finish that lingers for nearly a minute. Perfect with wild meat, chicken, turkey, ham, aged cheese and mushrooms.

Wine Spectator
What a great Cabernet. Dark ruby red color. Intense aromas of blackberry and black truffle. Very pungent. Full-bodied, layered and caressing. Wonderful flavors of licorice, dark chocolate, meat and berry. Super long. Fabulous structure and length.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2010. 1,000 cases made.
