A rich, elegantly styled Cabernet, with generous ripe plum, black cherry, herb and fresh earth notes that are vibrant and complex. Excellent balance, finishing with a long, clean aftertaste. The aromas offer notes of cassis, ripe currant, black cherry and dark chocolate, while excellent mid-palate structure and rich texture support lush flavors of blackberry, blueberry, Bing cherry and cassis. Slight earthy notes of tobacco, cedar and a subtle framework of oak complete the wine’s rich character.
What we attempt to achieve, through our winemaking practices, is a balance among the component parts of a wine. The realization of this balance between fruit, acidity, tannin, and alcohol ensures both a wine of finesse and enduring elegance and, quite importantly, a thread of continuity in our style from vintage to vintage.
Our commitment to producing a singular Chardonnay and a singular Cabernet Sauvignon—each a collection of the best lots of wine grapes thoughtfully blended to honor the subtleties of old-world wine traditions in France—allows for sharp focus on every detail of winegrowing. Each year's vintage reflects a deft winemaking approach that adapts to Mother Nature's needs, moods and realities throughout the growing season. The result is pristine grape clusters harvested with uniform ripeness at lower sugar levels—the foundation for crafting classic wines that are approachable while young yet still age gracefully.
