100% Cabernet Sauvignon
8 months Hungarian & French oak
Vineyards: Oliver
 
This is a single vineyard Cab from a single block with a very limited production. The aroma is rich of wild blueberries, ripe blackberries and red currant with dark sweet spices. The wine goes through full malolactic fermentation, so it has a rich mouthfeel with well integrated tannins and elegant texture.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
We made its first Cabernet in 1999. It was the first wine to be on the cover and has been a real hit since. This wine is a terroir driven Cabernet from gravelly, alluvial soils; very much like the gravel beds. Hence, the best Cabernet came from the main vineyard, with lots of gravel, grown on a Bordeaux Clone. Our goal with this wine is to showcase not only the best, but our most terroir driven Cabernet.
Production Notes
Only 120 cases produced
Winemaker Notes
Ruby red in color with intense aromas of dried olives and blackberries with underlying mineral and tea-like hints of espresso. Powerful, dusty Cabernet flavors hit you along with concentrated blackberry fruit flavors on the palate. The finish is clean and has a purity to it that is framed with ripe tannins that rein in the fruit.
