The 2017 is deep in colour with enticing layers of boysenberry, blackberry, plum and star anise. On the palate, the lush fruit flavours are framed by rich tannins and hints of dark chocolate and barrel spice. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot, 3% Zinfandel, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Petite Sirah – it’s a great showcase of Sonoma County Cab.
“Tasty red fruit is complemented by spicy oak in this approachable wine. With a juicy midpalate, it offers structure, rich smoothness and a lasting tone of warm spice.” 90 points, Wine Enthusiast, May 2020
