Home sweet home. This is from my home property and if you have visited, you’ll have seen the signs of the five children. Each year they get more involved in the grape growing and crushing practices, just down the hill from the house at the winery, where all our fruit is crushed.

Like some of our other mountain properties, we manage the powerful and potentially brutal tannins into a rounder, more approachable 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is full of toasty oak, spice, cherry fruit and cassis aromas consistent with our Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage has ripe dark fruit flavors plus a little tobacco, earth, chocolate and allspice. After an extended maceration to improve the mouth-feel, a lovely, evolved bottle-aged texture developed, with silky and powerful tannins evocative of our pristine mountain fruit.
