Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Opaque, deep, dark red with a ruby edge with flavors of cassis, black cherry followed by pepper, vanilla, incense, violets and dried herbs with a deep note of cocoa. Big and full aromatictics. Palate shows layers of dried black cherry, fleshy ripe plum, firm and fine tannins. Just a hint of smoky toasted oak and exotic spice followed by a lingering finish with balance between ripe and dark fruit flavors, lifted acidity and structured tannins. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard Notes
A low water year, with small berry size, beautiful ripening weather with an extended growing/ripening season with moderate temperatures 85-92° F day time temperature with cool night and foggy mornings, great for slow gentle ripening. Giving elegant fruit expression.
Winemaker Notes
Very spicy, dark and brooding. Perfume. Exotic. Serious. A wine for deep conversations and seriously good food. It reminds me of trusted, wise, old friend. Rugged and worldly. The Sam Elliot of wines. You are in for a treat! Enjoy with your best pals and classic cuisine. Buy an extra bottle to develop with, this one has the depth to age with grace and clarity.
Food Pairing Notes
Linguini with roasted mushrooms and radicchio, Braised Short Ribs with celery root puree and Moroccan spiced Squab.
