Aged: 9 Years
Ruby garnet in color, this fine Macauley Cabernet needed time to breathe before it revealed its luscious mixture of black fruit, chocolate and oak aromas and flavor. On the mouth, it became a silky smooth reminder of the quality you can expect from this artisan producer.
94 points, Beverage Testing Institute (June 14, 2012): “…A graceful, mellow, well-aged red that will shine at the table with veal chops and elk steaks.”
92 points, Wine Spectator (July 21, 2008): “Very ripe…finishes with a wonderful burst of red currant fruit…”
91 points, “The Best of Northern California: 2007, 2006, 2005” Wine Advocate (December 31, 2008): “…reminiscent of a northern Médoc. Dense, rich…should easily evolve for 15+ years.”
