Sweet and pruny on the nose, this smells of over-ripeness with its volatile nature, layered over lightly chemical vanilla tones. Soft and easy in the mouth, there’s not a whole lot of structure here. The plum and lightly pruny fruit is anchored by some lovely balsamic wood tones, making this pretty nice to drink, but it lacks tension and complexity. Finishes with bitter wood tannins. 86pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the best Sonoma County red grape s ub-appellations provide the complex aromas and flavors expressed in this blend. The characteristics of the hillside vineyard sites used (warm days balanced by cool nights and well-drained soils) make them ideal for producing ripe, rich textured and structured Cabernet Sauvignon. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wines were aged for 22 months in small French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels. A small percentage of Merlot was included in the final blend for added richness and complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Forward black cherry and black currant fruit aromas are wrapped in notes of chocolate, cedar and hints Herbes de Provence. The concentrated black fruit, chocolate and savory flavors are accented by anise and black pepper that spice up the finish. These intense yet elegant flavors are supported by young, yet approachable tannins, and ample acidity, providing for a lengthy finish.
