  • Product Description

    Winemaker Notes
    The grapes for this delicious Bordeaux-inspired blend come from several of our most prized estate and hillside vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley. Initially, the aromatics are bright and earthy with cherries, Herbs de Provence and fresh boysenberries emanating from the glass. Several more minutes reveal hints of tarragon, nutmeg, black tea and blueberry nuances. The palate displays layers of texture and complexity with provocative flavors of rhubarb, Asian plums and Bing cherries. The tannins are soft and supple leading to a silky smooth finish. The 2011 vintage came with its share of weather related challenges during harvest however; we were able to successfully navigate this tricky vintage to produce an outstanding, full bodied wine. Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim
    92: Tasting Panel
    Smooth and ripe with lovely plum and black raspberry fruit; dense and generous with rich, tangy and classic style; a premium Bordeaux blend at a very good price.

    92: Wine & Spirits
    A blend of all five Bordeaux varieties from vineyards throughout Dry Creek, including several hillside sites, this is firm and mouthwatering in the cool 2011 vintage. Its bright black raspberry flavor and somewhat rustic tannins are edged with a pungent woodsy aroma that brings pinesap to mind. It feels restrained and flavorful—another few years of bottle age should complete the wine, drawing out its subtle floral aromas and polishing the structure.
