About the Winery:
In 1975 our family planted the first vineyard on Red Mountain, an area now known for producing some of the world’s most powerful, opulent wines of distinction. For three generations we’ve worked together on our farm to grow exciting, vineyard-driven wines that capture the essence of our Red Mountain estates.

Notes from the Winemaker:
This authoritative wine shows why Red Mountain has a reputation as a powerhouse Cabernet Sauvignon producer capable of going toe-to-toe with the world's best. Fine-grain tannin, pure red and dark fruit, and deep color abound. Red Mountain produces balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with impeccable geographical specificity and intrinsic appeal.

Vineyard:

Cabernet is king on Red Mountain; here it's a powerful, balanced, and varietally-correct wine of distinction. For the 2019 version we pulled high-end fruit from all five of our estate sites. Older, elegant, pyrazine-driven Cabernet blocks at Kiona Estate comprise the backbone of the blend, whereas burlier, densely concentrated, fruit-forward components from some our younger plantings complement. The resulting interplay shows Red Mountain at its finest.

Blend:  86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot

Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - James Suckling:
"A full-bodied cabernet with fragrant notes of cedar, blueberries, mint, chocolate and ripe cherries. Polished and spicy on the palate with swaths of toasty dark fruit accompanied by ripe tannins. 86% cabernet sauvignon, 8% cabernet franc, 3% merlot and 3% petit verdot. Drink or hold." (March 2024)
