Wifey and I weren’t in love with this. I found it difficult to describe. It was muted on the nose and palate, and lacked the usual cabernet signature. Wonderful experience with the WNH crew tho.

This is actually the 2016. I forgot to shoot an image.

Perfume fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, creamy raspberries, baked strawberries, mixed berry cola, soft baking spices. caramel, light volcanic minerals, soft leather, crushed dry rocks, tobacco leaf and fresh red & dark perfume floral bouquets.

The body is leaner full and ruby, lush and elegant. Perfume fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, creamy raspberries, baked strawberries, mixed berry cola, soft baking spices. caramel, light volcanic minerals, soft leather, crushed dry rocks, tobacco leaf and fresh red & dark perfume floral bouquets. The acidity is perfect and medium balance is perfect. Nicely done.

Photos of, eide side shot of Wheeler Farms, garden beans teepee, white grape press and barrel room.

Give it a ton of air then look out! Dense sweet black fruit. Medium body with great balance.
