Tasting Notes


This is two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot, all sourced from the estate's DuBrul vineyard. It's drinking quite well, though clearly heading into secondary fruit flavors that reflect its ongoing maturation. Cherries, plums and cassis fruits mingle, along with silky, polished tannins. Though it can be cellared indefinitely, it may be at its most delicious drinking peak currently.


Polished, round and focused, with a vibrant feel to the ripe black cherry, cassis, peach, herb and tar flavors, hinting at cocoa and spice as it all lingers harmoniously against velvety tannins. This has power but also refinement. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
