Wine Review: This dark garnet colored wine opens with a huge bouquet of berries and a touch of mint. On the palate, this wine is extremely smooth. This wine is a perfect match for food. Its balance and flavors will enhance your meal. The finish is very very extended, a tad acidic, and finishes dry. This is my kind of wine. I’m sure you will enjoy it as well. - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is our first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon, which developed fully during this very warm growing season. This dark and intense Cabernet exhibits the classic plum and blackberry aromas of the Alexander Valley, but is enhanced by an exotic spicy quality we find characteristic of our vineyard. The dark fruit core of this wine is balanced by firm structure and rich dense tannins that last with the finish.
