Cabernet Sauvignon 88%, Merlot 7%, Carmenere 4%, Malbec 1%. Dark as night. An absolutely explosive nose of ripe red and black fruits, licorice, coffee, cassis and pine boughs. Palate is gorgeously plush, rich, dense, long, and loaded with fruit. Tannin is smooth and ripe, finish lasts forever. A very flamboyant yet balanced Cabernet. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 98 points and 'Top 100 Wines of 2001 (#3),' Wine Enthusiast.
Each of our vineyard solis shape the wine that comes from it. This is the essence of terroir. The soil of Seven Hills at the south end of the Valley is Ellisford Silt Loam.
