Upon entry, the nose offers ultra ripe fruit, especially cherry and candied fruits mixed with lingering notes of rocky minerality. As this salacious wine opens up in the glass its herbal notes give way to enticing floral aromas that perfectly complement the lush fruit flavors.
Defined by its elegance and finesse, this wine represents the epitome of Cabernet Sauvignon with its piercing fruit character and outstanding balance.
In the words of Henry Hartman, “success always comes when preparation meets opportunity.” With more than a decade of experience in the vineyard we definitely had the preparation part down, however we were happily surprised by the unlimited opportunity given to us by Mother Nature in 2012. The growing conditions were beyond fabulous, providing the double benefit of phenomenal quality as well as grand abundance, a winemaker’s dream. Serendipitous and trouble-free, the pristine conditions of the season delivered a harvest with marvelous quality and ample quantity, an ideal combination.
