This delicious wine, made entirely from Cab Sauvignon grapes, displays clear varietal character and balance. The tart cherry fruit has been ripened appropriately, retaining some desirable herb and forest floor character. Further oak aging adds a bit more complexity. All in all, you get a sense that a talented hand is at the winemaking helm and getting the very most from these grapes.
