Upon opening: Mild sediment in bottle. Pink/gold edges, implies more aging ahead. Garnet color. Slightly herbal/earthy yet highly restrained nose. Sweetness slightly above target, mild oak, earthy flavor, medium body, more than moderate tartness. At 30 minutes: More balanced, softer acids/tannins. Body stands up to roast tri-tip. Finish lingers a bit more. Sour cherries, toast notes now gaining prominence. At 75 minutes: Delicate tobacco notes, still a little too acid. Duskiness still a turn-off but finish is improved. Tasted in December, 2006.

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine displays a nose profuse with spice and cedar infused black cherries and currants followed by a rich palate of spicy red and black cherries, chocolate covered plums and blueberries with a tease of black olives lurking in the background. The voluminous mid-palate exits with a beautifully textured undercurrent of spice and white pepper that carries through to a lengthy finish that is inflected with hints of earth and mushrooms. This wine is already showing beautifully and will continue to develop more complexity as it ages for 5-10 years. Barrel Aging: 24 months Oak: 100% new French oak barrels Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
