THE WINE

The 2017 growing season was marked by early bud break and an exceptionally warm summer. Our vines produced outstanding grapes resulting in spectacular wines, a testament to how excellent the fruit from our estate can be.

TASTING NOTES

This is an elegant wine with aromas of dark chocolate, black cherry, and dried herbs. On the palate, there are lush flavors of graphite, cassis, blackberry, and baking cocoa. the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon evolves in the glass. This is a graceful wine with near-perfect balance and a long, lingering finish.
