Aged: 12 Years
This wine has developed into a real beauty. In its youth, the wine was very tight and needed some time to open up. Now, the ‘ugly duckling’ is a swan and is a real pleasure.
90 points, WineReviewonline.com, Michael Franz (January 2006): “This is a complex, interesting wine that won’t induce sticker shock while delivering a lot of complexity. Fruit notes include black cherry and blackberry, with mercifully subtle oak and nice little accents of mint and dried herbs. Soft and rounded in texture but still nicely structured and capable of standing up to
serious food, this is a balanced, sophisticated Cab that features fine fruit and deft winemaking.”
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
