Lush and elegant, with silky fruit and aromas. This wine is full and intense, yet balanced in the nose and mouth with soft round bright fruit with subtle oak spice and toast. Complex and sophisticated with rich layers of polished black cherry, blackberry, cassis and a hint of dark chocolate. It is focused with supple tannins and viscosity that lead to a long lingering finish full of fruit.
Rich aromatics blend with juicy, jammy fruit that are complex and concentrated. It is blended with 3% Cabernet Sauvignon complementing its dark color and lively texture. An expanded flavor profile exhibits tobacco, plum, vanilla bean, and blackberry that integrate with toasty oak nuances. Silky and smooth it seamlessly blends great acid and tannin.
This 100% hillside Cabernet Sauvignon is carefully handled throughout fermentation and aging. It is a multi-layered and supple, yet has elegant structured tannins and a rich mouth-feel. Expansive flavors of Chocolate, tobacco, caramel and dark cherry integrate to a long velvety finish. The structural integrity is focused towards depth and balance.
Harvested from 33-year-old dry farmed vines, we are able to achieve great concentration and depth with an underlying acidity that pairs well with a wide array of summer dishes. Our 2002 “old vine” Sauvignon Blanc is lush, creamy and round in the mouth. It is generously crisp with aromas of pineapple, peach, vanilla and a slight floral note that reflect it’s ripe fruit concentration. Richly layered with grapefruit, tangerine, and vanilla it focuses to a long vibrant finish.
