Dense, opulent, seductive; exhibiting abundant aromas of licorice, plums, black currants, cherries, and earthy undertones in its lush, fleshy, succulent personality. Capable of long-term aging.

Winemaker Notes
A very flavorful, elegant, and structured red wine in the style of very limited-production Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Excellent long-term ageing potential.
Food Pairing Notes
Big and powerful, this wine pairs well with most red meat-based dishes, wild game, rich, sauced cuisine and flavorful cheeses.
Production
1,484 cases
Other Notes
A wax sealed bottle is a beautiful addition to your wine rack, but can be intimidating when it comes time to open it. This is easier than you may think! Simply plunge your corkscrew through the wax, as if it were not even there. Lift the cork slightly and wipe any wax crumbles from the opening. Pull the cork the rest of the way out and enjoy!

Just opened this bottle last week to toast a oenophile friend who passed. It had mellowed out very nicely after decanting. One of the smoothest Cabs I've ever had. Our friend would have approved.
