Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Grapes from small Paso Robles AVAs blocks, aged in 75% new oak for 18 mos. Dark Ruby, aromas of sweet ripe black fruits & dried smoky tobacco spices. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry, blueberry, sweet cacao, espresso & vanilla oak. A big wine, fine tannins, long fruit finish ending with vanilla overwhelming fruit. 15% ABV has slight burn.

New vintage - same beautiful cab. In fact I think it’s even better now. Jumping right out of the bottle, no decanting necessary. Easily beats any Napa cab that costs twice as much.

Drank with SG friend for a hairy crab meal. very blackcurrant and taste abit like sweet port and bitter sweet. after some air the aroma got better with blue fruit, floral and mineral. overall drank too young but the overall impression is dark bold port sweet like character with a classic blue fruit napa nose. i like it

Wonderful fruity aroma, rich sweet flavor, hint of spice and cloves, intense mouthfeel. Great on its own or with chocolate.

Rich scent of coffee on the nose. Vanilla, black cherry, smoke, and a touch of coffee on the palette. Dark and big but the spice and oak aren’t too harsh.
