Our seventh vintage of this appellation Cabernet is blended from a combination of hillside and valley floor vineyards. Our style combines the harmony produced by traditional Bordelaise winemaking techniques with the voluptuousness gained from California’s weather, albeit a cooler, more elegant vintage.

Deep ruby. Spicy black and blue fruits on the nose and in the mouth, with a hint of singed plum in the background. Smooth and open-knit, offering juicy blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors sweetened by a vanilla nuance. Lingers with very good smoky tenacity, leaving a peppery note behind.-JR

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of the house style. Soft, round and succulent, the 2011 presents an attractive array of dark fruit to match its supple, open personality. Sweet tobacco, dried herbs, mocha and spices are layered into the finish. The wine's mid-weight structure suggests it is best enjoyed over the next handful of years. There is a lot to like here.
