This is the winery's first release off its Taylor Mag Vineyard. Aromas don't reveal their charms on first pour, with notes of café au lait, cherry, raspberry, woodspice and herb. The palate brings firm, brawny tannins along with plentiful cherry flavors. Cocoa notes linger on the finish. It's everything you expect from a Cabernet, at a price below many wines from this appellation.
