Winemaker Notes

A rich and elegant offering, this is quintessential mountainCabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of sweet, ripe red plums and black cherries are complimented with hints of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. In the mouth, the wine is full, juicy and sweet with ripe cherries, plums and tannins that are expansive yet round.Ending with a kiss of spicy oak, this wine is certainly a crowd pleaser now, but will also reward the patient collector of ne Cabernet Sauvignon.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Bold aromas, thick layers of fruit flavor, and a supple but steely texture of fine tannins and acidity add up to a powerful and complex wine that should improve with age. Pure, dark-fruit flavors are accented by smoke and cardamom while the structure is mouthpuckering with astringency but softened by the richness of body and fruit. Best after 2019. Cellar Selection.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This vineyard, planted in red volcanic soil at 2,500 feet of elevation in the hills above Clear Lake, produced a cabernet with cool, mountain-grown density. The fruit is rich enough to draw the stony granularity of its tannin into a satisfying line, as scents of cassis and pine duff fill its juicy wild-blueberry flavor with some savory detail.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
