Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon presents with deep dark shades of reds and purples. Aromas of black currant and black plum leap from the glass and are joined by notes of anise, white pepper and cocoa. Flavors of black plum and cassis follow with toasted oak, a subtle hint of vanillin and espresso. This wine has brooding flavors, tremendous length, a fine texture and incredible structure.


The fruit was hand harvested in the cool morning hours and brought to the winery in half ton bins. At the winery, the clusters were sorted using a double sorting system. First, the clusters were sorted by hand. The fruit then ran through a small destemmer that removed stems from the grapes prior to the individual berries being sorted to ensure that the most ideal grapes were chosen. These berries were delivered to a fermenter where there was a period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged along with gentle cap maceration to achieve the desired color and structure for the wine before an extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing. The wine was transferred directly to barrel for 19 months of maturation.
