The bright and lively aromas, spiced with toasty, vanilla oak accents are based on darker berry fruits. This Cab’s texture is rich and full. True to form for our State Lane Vineyard, there are firm but rich tannins which frame the wine and give it definition.

93 points, Wine Enthusiast (December 2008): “This is a big, powerful, extracted Cabernet, the kind that invariably wins high points from the critics. It feels important, with soft, velvety but complex tannins framing oak-inspired flavors of perfectly ripe black currants that finish dry and long. Beautiful now, with decanting, and should age gracefully for a decade.”

4 (out of 5) stars, Restaurant Wine (November 2008)

Enjoy,” says winemaker Chris Corley. From bittersweet chocolate to steak and spicy red pastas, this classic Cab’s a royal ride.  Just 189 cases made.
