Bold, lush and so delicious, this exciting wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals the biggest and best that the Napa Valley has to offer.

Sonoma County Harvest Fair Gold Medal
Deep and dark with an intensely inky core of darkest crimson. At the edge of the glass, a chubby ring of garnet cuts a beautiful circle around the wine.
Lush, heady aromas leap from the glass, led by stewed berry fruit and stewed plum, reminiscent of a mixed compote. This dense aroma is followed by classic Cabernet aromas of chocolate, tobacco, black cherry, leather and a touch of soft cedar.
Big and bold, with dense, intense blackberry, plum, pomegranate, tobacco, spice and dried fall leaves, followed by baker’s chocolate and toasty oak.
Extra long, with intense black fruit that very gradually fades to tobacco, subtle spice and a hint of cocoa dust.
A thickly cut filet mignon with a mushroom garlic sauté and a dollop of green peppercorn butter on top.
