Wine Profile: This wine is opaque with dark ruby color. The aroma is very rich with blackberry and dark currant fruit. With great depth of fruit, the oak adds a spicy edge, yielding nuances of aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, cigar box, black pepper and dark chocolate cocoa powder. This is a big, full-bodied wine, balanced with black fruit flavors, coupled with good acidity and resolved tannins. This wine will give a Cabernet lover goosebumps!  

Primary Vineyards:  
Bosché Vineyard-Rutherford: Located west of Hwy. 29, on the famed Rutherford Bench, the Bosché vineyard has very deep, gravelly soils. A seasonal creek crosses the vineyard which causes the water table to be high in the spring, providing water and nutrients for new shoot growth. As veraison approaches the water table drops, stressing the wines and intensifying the dark, velvety fruit flavors.

Sycamore-Rutherford: Located about 1.2 miles south of Bosché, right up against the Mayacamas Range, this vineyard has a rich clay loam. Sycamore Vineyard produces small berries reminiscent of mountain fruit berries, with intense extract of color and flavor of black currant and black berry with a forest floor complexity.

Life span in a proper cellar 20-25 years +
