Wine Review: I have read a lot of good things about this wine in the past, so I was very interested to try some. I was not disappointed. The nose of this wine was just a little shy. On the palate, this wine was smooth as silk and had very rich flavors. An elegant Cabernet that would does quite well with a steak dinner. The finish is nicely dry and it had some very good length to it. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Eponymous 2003 exudes intriguing notes as soon as the wine is poured. The aromas are at once concentrated and complex, and so well integrated that one needs to look for intriguing hints of ripe dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, subtle spicy oak and a rich earthiness. Held to light, this elegant wine shimmers with a stunning deep purple scarlet color that announces the intensity of the grapes. The palate is equal to the lush color and bold aromas – at once rich, full and round from the initial taste and continuing as it fills the mouth–leading to a long, lingering finish. It has tremendous presence and yet is in wonderful harmony with soft, accessible tannins adding appropriate structure to this alluring wine.
