Taking its cues from proven, hand-crafted winemaking, this is one of our purest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, with elegant layers of fruit, supple tannins, whispers of oak and a finish that is pure finesse.

Tasting Notes
Pure, fresh plum, violet and sage aromas lead to a round palate layered with ripe plum, dark berry and black currant flavors. Leather, cedar and dried herb accents, along with whispers of vanilla and oak provide depth, while lithe acidity keeps the wine lifted, balanced and bright. Supple tannins feel like suede-velvet and carry the elegant fruit and spice flavors into a finish that goes on and on. This debut vintage is pure finesse.
Vineyard Notes
From start to finish, the 2018 growing season was nearly pitch perfect. Our first buds appeared early, with a mild spring giving us extended flowering, uniform clusters and balanced vines. Summer’s slow, consistent temperatures allowed fruit to hang for extended time on the vine. Harvest began in early October, with fruit coming into the winery that was perfectly ripe with beautiful phenolic maturity.
