Limited Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Notes Textbook conditions saw near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality with a smooth balance of acids and sugars. This vintage, while as much as 30% higher than the past two years' smaller crops, is on par with near-normal quantity. Tasting Notes Elegant and defined by good structure and balance. Aromas of plum, raspberry and black cherry with mocha and herb notes in the background. Full-bodied with lush but not overripe fruit on broad mid-palate. Integrated flavors of red fruit and toasted vanilla with a silky and smooth finish.
