Tasting Notes

Full bodied with a supple, round mid palate, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of cassis, chocolate, dried herbs, and dark plums, with a lingering and soft finish. If you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for 3 to 6 years and patience will reward you.

Reserve Cabernet (1.5L)

Reserve means the winemaker’s careful blend of individual wines made from time tested, meticulously farmed sections of some of the very best vineyards.  Select areas within each vineyard are hand harvested individually, fermented separately, and aged in the finest French oak barrels. After about six months, each lot is tasted and graded, and only the highest graded wines that display depth, concentration, and age worthiness are considered for Reserve Cabernet.

Reviews

“91 points - Another fairly forward offering and one that, given its makeup, is pretty keenly focused on ripe black cherries, this full and fleshy effort combines juicy flavors with a mannerly dose of supportive tannins.”

- Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

“90 points - Here’s a fruity, soft, flamboyant Cabernet, packed with plum, blackberry, black currant, licorice, dark chocolate and spicy oak flavors. Delicious and savory, it’s probably showing its best now, so drink up. ”
