Inky hued, nearly opaque, with intense aromas of well ripened red and black fruits, toasted earth, and spicy vanilla, this quite rich cabernet is concentrated and expansive on the palate, while remaining round and relatively soft given its ample structure, and is followed by a long, broad and seductive finish.
Established in 1994, Rockaway is planted mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but includes all five of the classic Bordeaux varieties. Rising up to an elevation of 750 feet, the land generally slopes northeast and southwest, with soils comprised of gravelly clay subsoil over fractured sandstone. This well-drained, low pH earth tends to encourage the production of small-berried clusters, ideal for making a bold, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon with juicy red and black fruit character, and an elegantly round and seductive mid-palate.
“96 points - Impresses for the sheer power of ripeness, but also and especially for the structure. The flavors of blackberries, cherries, currants, cocoa, herbs and sweetly smoked oak are beautiful and complex, yet the tannin-acid balance is near perfect.”
- Wine Enthusiast February 2010
“94 points - Well proportioned, intense, concentrated and richly flavored, with layers of loamy currant, anise, blackberry, mineral and sage that are full-blown and powerful, yet not without a measure of finesse and elegance.”
