Nutty aromas of peppered bacon and blackberry. Flavors are light, and sit by the front of the mouth. Gentle tannins and red fruit are soft on this cab, but there's still a bit of spice on the attack.
This wine won a silver medal at the 2009 Jerry Mead's New World Wine Competition .
Winner of gold medals at the 2009 Orange County Wine Competition and 2009 West Coast Wine Competition.
From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 91 Points. Gold Medal. Inky garnet violet color. Bright aromas of cassis, fresh eucalyptus leaf, roasted nuts, and cedar follow through on a supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with tart berry, chocolate, and cherry skin notes. Finishes with a crisp, tangy, powdery tannin fade. Nice and smooth; pair with Mediterranean veal dishes (Tasted on Jun-29-2009).

The complex, dark fruit selected for this wine, hanging from the vines like rubies sparkling in the sun, produces a wealth of complex flavors. Layered notes of blackberries, cherries, plums and hints of toasted oak end in a rich, long finish, just waiting to be revealed.
