On the nose, slightly sweet dark fruits, burnt ambers, dark soil and decayed darks florals. One the palate, ruby fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, strawberries and raspberries. The body is lean with grippy, silty, dark tannins, dark chocolate, mocha powder, wood shavings, dry stems, fresh red florals, cola, leathery, light touch of vanilla, good acidity with a dry finish. Don't open for 8-10 years. Photo tour of; the estate building & vines, Winemaker Elias Fernandez with Owner Doug Shafer, vineyard staff harvesting and their tasting area.

A terrific example of the vintage, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five delivers serious depth and intensity, but with relatively soft tannins for the year. Inky blue and purplish fruit, spices, mint and lavender flesh out in the glass. Succulent and fleshy, the One Point Five offers more near and medium-term accessibility than most 2013s. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)

Nice for a 2014. A little young, but clear notes of black cherry. Enjoying it!

Flowers in the aroma. Flavors of blackberries with plums, currants, and touch of chocolate. Dry tannins with a long finish
