Deep, dark and delicious - a very complex wine, each time I sniff it I get a whiff of something new, savory or sweet with loads of black fruit and some candied dates, violets and soy sauce. Juicy and smooth, with full blackberry flavor, chocolate and caramel. The finish is over a little too quickly, but otherwise I love it.

Toasted vanilla inky black aroma, with hints of caramel and cassis. Nice full body with good supporting tannins, kind of a hot back with ripe cherry flavors. Pretty overpowering in some respects, it ain't for weak kneed sippers. Some of the coffee flavors remind me of porter beer.

Winemaker's Notes:

A unique 40 acre vineyard block on the back side of our mountain estate at an elevation of 1,200 feet overlooking Alexander Valley yields Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that are extremely intense and complex. Shallow, rocky soils, balanced low crop and perfect sun exposure result in this terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon.
