Black fruits of loganberry, boysenberry and plum mingle with salted heirloom olives,cigar box and fresh herbs create an exciting aromatic profile. Fine grain tannins present themselves throughout the front, middle and finish of this wine demonstrating the intrinsic mountain fruit harvested at optimal ripeness.While the aromatics suggest a fruitful mouth, the rocky soils provide a surprising counterpoint of silky minerality and flavors of fresh plums, firm blackberries and a classic semblance of cassis, suede and sandalwood.
93 Points, Jame Suckling: "Although this is a dense and ripe Napa cabernet, there are hints of fresh herbs and blood oranges that lift the ripe blackberry, plum and citrus aromas. On the palate, the bitter-chocolate character is more discreet than in many modern-style wines and nicely sets off the generous fruit and supple tannins. The long, fresh finish is supported by restrained tannins. Drink or hold." 3/19
A rich, plush style, with a wave of cassis, plum reduction, melted black licorice and smoldering tobacco notes that move in unison from start to finish, ending with a late tug of singed cedar. Drink now through 2032. 1,060 cases made.
