Firm, spicy and chewy, with a thread of blueberry and currant keeping it focused through the delicate finish. Best from 1999.

A wonderful wine from Sonoma County, which produces soft, opulent red wines that taste great with food.

The deep, ruby hue mirrors the density and power on the palate. Gripping tannins balance out the ripe red and black fruit flavors, finishing with a subtle layer of oak. Classic presentation, and built to stand up to any hearty meat dish.

A classically styled California Cab with plenty of blackberry fruit and vanillin. A subtle oakiness gives the wine a well-rounded backbone that would match perfectly with steak.

Full and generous cherry and pomegranate flavors give this beefy cabernet a mellow sweetness. It's clean and soft, ready for a steak.

Nice, simple Cabernet, with proper varietal flavors and a dusting of oak. Dry, balanced and supple in the mouth, without much depth or complexity.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The deep, ruby red color of this wine, hinting at black, is the first clue to its intensity. Vibrant aromas of ripe blackberry, hints of leather, and vanilla mingle with notes of complex violet floral, tobacco and toasted oak aromas on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety on the palate, the flavors are bright and juicy, with hints of ripe blackberry, plums, anise and clove. The wines persistent finish marries fruit, oak and tannin in perfect balance.

Tasting Notes:

The 2006 Briarcrest marries suave, complex structure with elegant fruit and stellar varietal appeal, making it as much a cellar selection as a natural fit for today’s table. Inky ruby red in color, on the nose it pairs complex aromas of cassis, blackberry essence, licorice, and lavender with powerful notes of cedar and brown spice. On the palate, the wine delivers powerfully rich black fruit flavors and supple, structured tannins before a lengthy finish, which wraps up with velvety notes of dark chocolate, espresso, and toast.
