I confess, I love this vineyard. It's not the jammiest, most opulent in the state, but it consistently delivers vivid, perfectly balanced wines, with amazing aging potential. The latest Cabernet has a wonderful bouquet, blending plush fruits, spice, chocolate, coffee, mineral, tea and cedarbox. It's complex and delicious, as well as structured to age, without excess oak or overripe fruit.
