Wine Spectator 91 pts
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: USA / California / Sonoma County
Type: Full-bodied red wine
After a three-day cold soak, grapes are crushed and fermented at relatively warm temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After pressing, each lot is blended or lightly egg-white fined to remove green tannins.
Ageing: The wine is aged for 14 months, primarily in new and one-year-old French oak barrels. A smaller percentage goes into Hungarian and American oak.
Color: Deep purple.
Nose: Elegant aromas of dried cranberries, bergamot tea and vanilla wafer.
Palate: Ripe and round tannins fill the mouth with flavors of black cherry, baking spices and dried herbs. The finish lingers with bright berry fruit, loamy earth and a slight sweetness imparted by the oak.
Food pairing: Beef, lamb, game (deer, venison), poultry.
