Wine Profile
Awards
♦ 92 Points - James Suckling. "A balanced, fruity red with mineral and berry character, plus hints of currants. Full body with silky tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Drink or hold." ♦ 91 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media. "Dark cherries, plums, graphite, cinnamon and flowers meld together in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Don Thomas Vineyard. The round, supple style offers plenty of immediacy. Blackberry jam, grilled herb, violets, mint and a hint of sweet tobacco add the final flourishes of nuance. Overall though, the 2011 appears to be built for near and medium-term drinking."
