Mostly oaky spice on the nose, which is tight but does slowly reveal hints of crushed blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. This is a bit dense and closed in on itself, but there is a gorgeous core of red and black fruit here and really lovely ripe tannins as well as integrated acidity that keeps this fresh and lively in the mouth. The finish shows typical wood spice notes, but there is a trailing hint of minerality here as well as a fine depth of fruit and rich, soft texture. This needs a few years, but is going to be really attractive. 92 points

A long, cold winter delayed the start of the growing season. Beginning in early July, a series of heat waves led to a strong inversion, which warmed the typically cool nights, and moderated acidity. Optimal daytime temperatures allowed the vines to catch up. Veraison began in late July, and grape sampling in late August. The first block was picked September 23, the last on October 12-a day before very heavy rains. Seventeen estate cabernet parcels were selected by blind tasting. Elegant and approachable now, this superb vintage will continue to develop over the next ten to fifteen years. - WineryComposition:77% CABERNET SAUVIGNON23% MERLOTALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 13.8% ** SOLD OUT **
