Notes from the Winemaker:

"Dark purple color and earthy aromas of eucalyptus, dried tobacco, and cocoa lead to a blast of ripe red fruit laced with leather and espresso. Extremely approachable young, this wine displays unique balance backed by sweet and supple tannins and should age for at least a decade or more" - Winemaker - Rolando Herrera

Ratings & Reviews



Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2007 Vintage):
"A delicious, deep ruby/purple-colored offering, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses forward fruit, lots of cedar, spice box, Christmas fruitcake and black currant characteristics, sweet tannin and a medium to full-bodied, lush personality. It should provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade." - Robert Parker (Dec 2010)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2007 Vintage):

"A good wine that delivers the power you want. It’s dry and rich in blackberries, currants, chocolate and smoky cedar. There’s a slight rusticity in the form of a tannin-acid inconsistency." — S.H. (12/15/2010)
