Pure, powerful and beautifully structured, this opulent wine captures the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated aromas of blueberry and blackberry rise from the glass, followed by notes of espresso, anise and dark chocolate. The ripe dark berry elements are echoed on the lush palate, where they are underscored by mouthcoating tannins and hints of toasted oak, clove and nutmeg. The finish is rich and lingering, resonating with alluring layers of black cherry and spice.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a powerfully concentrated and constructed wine, with 14% Petit Verdot and 8% Malbec. Dark, inky and reductive, it offers waves of tar, leather and toasted oak within sinewy tannins. Chewy black fruit is structured around wild elements of cedar, dried herb and sage, with lingering notes of clove. This is one to let settle; enjoy best from 2025-2030.

Wine SpectatorBold blueberry, plum and boysenberry fruit flavors give this an overt profile, with warm anise, fruitcake and chocolate notes pouring in alongside the fruit through the finish. There's a buried graphite edge for support, lengthening this out. A big red. Drink now through 2032.
