This is a rich, powerful, dense Cabernet Sauvignon with all the elegance and soft, silky tannin that has always defined our Estate. Notes of black plums, black cherries, violets, cinnamon and toffee, layered with ripe red fruit and chocolate cherries. Complex, exciting, and elegant.

93 points, Wine Advocate (Dec. 2011) “…expressive aromatics and plenty of nuances. Notes of blackberries, Chambord, spices, white flowers and licorice…”

92 points, Wine Spectator (October 31, 2011) “A rich, dense, captivating style that serves up tiers of loamy earth, dried herb and currant, with black licorice, sage, cedar and mineral. Full-bodied, well-balanced and complex, with the flavors woven together on a chewy finish. Best from 2012 through 2021.”

Enjoy this beauty with grilled skirt steak, roast chicken and veggies, eggplant lasagna or pork tenderloin.
