Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This enticing and deeply colored red wine shows a complex nose of baking spice, black olive and graham integrated beautifully with aromas of ripe black fruits. In the mouth the wine is rich and elegant, showing subtle notes of herb and black berry. Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; the finish is complex, generous, and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years or more.
Vineyard Notes

Production Notes
The 2015 vintage was smaller and slightly warmer than 2014, yet at the same time gave impressive quality. Beautifully mature fruit was achieved through rigorous shoot thinning, leaf stripping and green harvesting. All grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and de-stemmed. This Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in small stainless steel tanks and was punched down or pumped over twice a day. Aging in French Chateaux barrels for twenty-two months has produced a well-proportioned, complex and generous red wine. We have consciously chosen to use slightly less new French oak as these vineyards have gotten older; thus allowing the wine to express true varietal character and distinct sense of place.
