From the Producer

The density of the deep-garnet color hints at the extraction in this wine. Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum, and a savory touch of anise. Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouthfeel and bright acidity. There is a clean elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry, tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish. Sit with this one for a while, get to know it, and enjoy the evolution. Elegantly powerful now, this will be a real stunner in 10–15 years.

Critical Acclaim

SP96 Wine Spectator Aug 31, 2019

"This delivers a very tightly focused, almost piercing beam of cassis, raspberry coulis and bitter cherry fruit, scored with singed alder and iron notes. Incense and tobacco details chime in on the finish. Long and refined, with the fruit leaving a sweet and mouthwatering echo. Best from 2022 through 2038. 4,800 cases made." (96 pts.)

JS93 JamesSuckling.com Monday, November 19, 2018

"This offers attractive, ripe black-cherry and plum aromas, leading to a palate that has a plush, fleshy and supple array of smooth, soft and ripe blackcurrant flavors. This has more to come. Try from 2020." (93 pts.)

VN93 Vinous Jan 2020

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve emerges from two blocks on the western edge of the property where gravelly, alluvial soils naturally produce low yields in the vineyard. Black cherry, menthol, lavender, spice and dried flowers all develop enticingly in the glass. Bright and focused with plenty of supporting structure, the 2016 is extremely expressive, even in the early going. I would give it a few years in bottle to soften." (93 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
