Winemaker Notes

Aromas of black currants, dried fruit and cherry blend with subtle notes of anise, spice and cocoa. Tannins are rich and refined on the finish, a characteristic of Red Mountain fruit, with flavors of berries, black fruit and cocoa.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain is all varietal and spent 22 months in new French oak. Coming from a mix of the Sol Solare, Quintessence, Shaw, and Kina vineyards, its deep purple hue is followed by a beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied Cabernet with lots of currant fruits, notes of lead pencil, violets, and damp earth, silky tannins, and a great finish. It doesn’t have the richness or concentration of the reserve, yet it’s better balanced. Drink this beauty over the coming 15 years or so.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Also blended with a splash of Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dusty, dark blackberry essence with the rusticity of Red Mountain terroir. Full-bodied and weighted on the palate, the wine offers a balanced frame and some tight tannins that will loosen in time before. The wine ends with flavors of pencil shavings, cedar and plum reduction on the long, drawn-out finish. It's always good and constantly dependable.

James Suckling
A rather lean, gritty-textured cabernet with lots of iodine, blackberry and confer undertones. Full-bodied, tight and rich. Better in 2021. Drink or hold.
