Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Grown from the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines on the Estate, which are deeply rooted in the most well drained soils, give life to this magnificent wine. Wafting blueberries is intense and vibrant, weaving in and out of the incredible dark and savory chocolate that is undeniable signature of this wine. Easily caught up in the complexities and its rich nature, a connection is truly made deep down as if two souls have become one. The best effort in 2017, and one that will not be forgotten for many years to come.
Ratings
96 Points - Anthony Dias Blue. "Deep, dark and spicy, velvety and lush with elegant, complex flavors of plum, spice, licorice and vanilla; layered, resonant and deep, long and exquisite."
Vineyard Notes
The year began with abundant rainfall. Spring weather was mild, resulting in extended flowering. Three heat events, including one over Labor Day weekend, kicked harvest into high gear, dehydrating some grapes by early September. Cool weather arrived immediately afterward, allowing sugar levels to return to normal. Due to slightly lower yields the quality of the vintage is high. This is the sixth year in a row were quality has been above average.
