92% Cabernet Sauvignon & 8% Petit Verdot
Made with a selection of the best quality from our Rutherford vineyards, this wine is deep, dark, and complex. This wine exhibits aromas of dark fruit with layers of mint, rosemary, and eucalyptus. With an impressive, suede-like tannic structure, the entry of ripe red fruit gives way to more savory notes of tobacco leaf, cedar, and allspice. Intense richness on the finish is balanced with natural fruit acidity, leaving you with notes of black cherry and toasted almond. This wine shows great aging potential.

Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, chocolate, gravel and mineral notes are all delineated in a wine with distinct Rutherford personality. Firm, dusty tannins support the long finish. The 2013 can be enjoyed now, but it will be even better in time.

Supple fruit, again black cherry liqueur, licorice, spice box and blacker fruits cascade over the palate in this medium to full-bodied, beautifully made, pure wine. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
