89 points "Well-focused, supple and polished, with ripe, rich and complex black cherry, plum and currant flavors that finish with a cedary oak and sage aftertaste, and ripe, fleshy tannins. Drink now through 2008. 5,600 cases made. (JL) " Best 2005-2008

"A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from carefully selected vineyard lots throughout our Estate. The wine has deep black cherry and plum character, backed by notes of earth and cedar, and a dense, weighty palate with firm tannins and massive structure. Aging in small French oak barrels fully integrated the flavors and tannins."
