Year in year out the hallmark of the wine that the grapes from this vineyard allow us to make is the beautifully expressive aromas and elegant, balanced mouthfeel. To me this is the essence of a fine red wine/Bordeaux blend. The 2008 vintage, although slightly more challenging than most, did not disappoint. The complexity and intensity of the aromas are evident from the moment the cork is popped. Aromas hinting of red fruit, raspberries and cherries, along with orange peel, and spicy oak notes add to the enjoyment. It has more than sufficient body and structure with added flavors of vanilla and chocolate. Lively, bright, and balanced flavors are evidenced on the palate, with a long satisfying finish.

Wine Enthusiast

There's something lusty about this wine. It's the strong berry, cherry and chocolate flavors, combined with powerful tannins and an immediately delicious umami taste. Seems best now.

Score: 89. —Steve Heimoff, August 01, 2011.

Wine Spectator

Firm, dry and savory, with a pebbly graphite edge to the dried berry, sage, rust and cedar notes. Full-bodied, ending with drying tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018. 1,026 cases made.

Score: 87. —James Laube, 2011.
