La Honda Winery 2013 Lonehawk Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Rich blackberry and candied black-cherry aromas meet with strong cedar, roast beef, smoke, olive, soy and a tarry quality on the nose of this bottling. It's very dry and sticky with tannins on the sip, which relegate the flavors of red cherry and roasting herbs to the background. The 100% American oak treatment remains prominent, so this may evolve more favorably with time. Matt Kettmann
