Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, & 1% Cabernet Franc
96 POINTS - "On the nose, the personality of the fruit sourced from premiere sites comes to life with dazzling aromas of red and black fruits and complementary notes of roasted espresso, mocha, leather, mineral, fresh sage, savory spices, and cedar. Ripe, elegant, and juicy. As the wine opens, the palate is filled with lush flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, raspberry, ripe plum, and black currant. Hints of chocolate and toasted walnuts add depth and complexity, while the silky texture and supple tannins coat the palate on route to a long, generous finish. True cabernet character in each sip." - Chris Sawyer
This very limited lot displays beautiful structure and balance. Notes of rich black cherry fruit, currant, cedar, tea leaves, and cocoa. The finish is lengthy with lush and silky tannins. Expect to enjoy through 2030.
