Winemaker's Notes

A beautifully dark and saturated color that leads in to aromatics of raspberry, blackberry cobbler and cocoa powder. Digging deeper reveals sage brush, menthol and rosemary that evolves and opens with grace over time — a completely entrancing wine. A large mouthfeel of dark fruit, dark chocolate and enticing length with perfect acidity for balance. Incredibly rich and lush, this wine is complex, ridiculously layered, and will age for years to come. Being almost entirely from McQueen Vineyard, the 2014 is a great testament to the strength of this site. Fractured basalt driven soils, wind that thickens the skins and develops tannin, and a higher elevation that retains the acidity and allows for more hang time — Winemaker, Josh McDaniels, couldn’t be more proud of this wine.

Vinous" Full ruby-red. Very dark scents of blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and black licorice. At once sweet, pliant and concentrated; a very ripe, deep, densely packed Cabernet given shape by harmonious acidity. Cassis and dark chocolate flavors display a youthfully medicinal aspect, but there's also terrific sweetness lurking. Really spreads out horizontally to saturate the palate, finishing with major ripe, building, tongue-coating tannins and superb length. Perhaps a bit less refined than the 2014 but this is still a baby. This serious, very concentrated wine should evolve slowly and gracefully and may ultimately merit an even higher rating."
