Flavors of raspberry, blackberry and cassis with aromas of brown sugar and black pepper compliment a firm but balanced oak profile.

The grapes for this wine were crushed and fermented warm. The juice was then pumped over to ensure regular skin contact. The wine was pressed off the skins at dryness and allowed to settle in a stainless steel tank. It was racked to 60 gallon French and American oak barrels to finish malolactic fermentation. This wine has been barrel aged for 28 months..

Reviews:

"Does just what you want a Cab at this price to do, offering soft, immediate pleasure with extra points for complex elegance. You’ll find cassis, cherry, sage and cedar flavors wrapped into ripely sweet tannins, with a finish of authority. — S.H. (2/1/2008)" -Rated 88, Wine Enthusiast

"There is a certain sensation of toughness to the dense, properly curranty aromas of this ripe and weighty youngster, and, while a fairly rich wine on the palate, it does indeed turn out to be a rugged effort with drying tannins closing out its undeveloped flavors. Refinement seems beyond is reach even with age, but it has the stuffing to grow and few years of softening are recommended all the same." -Rated 86, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
