An effusive nose of black fruits (black currant, huckleberry, blackberry), warm toast, roasted coffee beans and hints of suede. Smooth, medium-full texture with bright acidity and an even mouthfeel. The complex palate has notes of blackberry compote, black tea, toasted walnuts, and a hint of pomegranate, with a lingering finish of black fruits and dark chocolate.

Vineyard Notes
Record-breaking winter rainfall kicked off the season, replenishing soils and ponds. A pleasant spring brought bud break at the normal time, and we welcomed small berries with excellent color. A hot summer came to a peak on Labor Day weekend but our grapes fared well, and once cooler weather arrived, our red varietals were able to mature at a gradual pace. This wine celebrates Cabernet Blocks 18 (Clone #4) and 9 (Clone #7), which were planted in the 1990s and beautifully express our terroir.
