A blend from three vineyards, ripe nose with black cherry and ripe plum. There are complex notes berry fruit and hints of dried herbs and mocha. The tannins are ripe and plush. This is a very pleasing Cabernet with a long round finish and great mouthfeel. We think this will age well but will probably be a wine you go through very quickly!
It’s hard to believe we could possibly have another strong year after such a great 2013, but we did! In 2014 we moved out of Chaine d’Or and gained room for more Cabernet and it let us do some additional blending. This wine contains fruit from the Chaine d’Or vineyard and Harvest Moon Vineyard. There’s a small amount of Merlot, about 4%. It’s a very classic Santa Cruz Mountains cab and reminds us a lot of the 2007 version.
Tasting Note: This wine is dark with a floral nose showing hints of herbs and ripe plums. A nice complex and well balanced wine with plum, bing cherry and blackberry fruit. There’s a great mouth feel with this wine and ripe plush tannins promise excellent aging. The wine has a super long and complex finish.
