Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A powerful Cabernet from the hillsides of Alexander Valley, this wine is lush with blackberries, dark plum, and chocolate. The notes of dried herbs, black pepper and minerality reflect the terroir of the Alexander Valley. The soft, supple, and mature tannins give this wine a strong backbone, while the 18 months of barrel aging have softened the wine enough to enjoy now. Pair this wine with herb crusted pork loin, grilled vegetables, a Gruyère cheese and mushroom topped burger, or cellar for enjoyment over the next three to five years.

Open-knit, featuring a mix of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by a bolt of licorice on the finish. A light savory hint gives this a little lift at the very end. Drink now through 2020.

Herbal and briary, this wine shows strong flavors of clove, cigar and leather saddle, with a soft, easygoing midpalate of full-bodied weight and flavor. Black currant and dark chocolate mark the finish.
