Vibrant garnet hues and aromas of dried thyme and ginger combine to enhance the very full mid-palate feel. Rich, dark fruits are the star here, along with fine structure and balance. The finish is supple and lingering.

95 points, Wine Enthusiast “Cellar Selection” (December 31, 2010): “This is a big, age worthy 100% Cabernet Sauvignon…dryly tannic, with the black currant and crème de cassis flavors buried under a cloak of astringency…Give this wine at least six years, and it should continue to blossom in a good cellar for another decade.”

Roast beef, tri-tip steak, and game meats, are great choices with this robust red. Drink now or hold 15-20 years.
