Tasting Notes

The first of our flagship wines. This vintage is a perfect blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Merlot. From the second this wine touches the glass you notice an aroma of spice and vanilla. With a wonderful berry taste, this wine finishes with a savory hint of spice and dark cherries. Drink now till 2030.

Vineyard Designation

Sams Valley Vineyard

Vineyard Notes

The fruit spring gave us a warm and flowering and fruit set with a high quality of fruit. The rest of the year gave the vineyard a long growing season with very little frost pressure in the spring or the fall. We had an average heat index that got us through a harvest ending in late October. The spring gave us a warm and flowering and fruit set with a high quality of fruit.
