A core of creamed plum and cassis flavors leads the way, while warm earth, baker's chocolate and roasted alder notes run along the edges. Pulls together on the dark and smoldering finish. Very solid. Best from 2022 through 2032. 500 cases made. — JM

Product Description:

"The Vineyard and Winemaking – Our estate vineyard is located on a special parcel in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The vineyard borders Dry Creek at the base of the Mayacamas Mountain range and is located in the largest of 10 alluvial fan belts in Napa Valley. The well-drained sandy and gravelly loam soils, in partnership with moderate temperatures, yield concentrated fruit with great flavor intensity, yet a supple mouth-feel. The vineyard is planted to three different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting- Hues of crimson jewel drape the glass while essence of blackberry puree, toasted oak, balsamic reduction and reminiscent of a chocolate coated strawberry grace the nose. The palate is rich and balanced, featuring supple tannin and a soft acidity. Accents of cranberry compote, baked blackberry, plum preserves and café mocha shine. Espresso bean freshly cut rosemary, vanilla cream and hazelnut crunch glide along the lengthy finish." - Winery
