Tasting Notes

We blended two fantastic Red Mountain vineyards together to make this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Impeccably balanced with robust aromas and layered flavors of dark cherry and oak spice, this wine is consistent with classic Red Mountain Cabs. The majority of the wine is old vine (planted in 1984) Klipsun Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. 20% of the blend is a unique clone of Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 169, from Quintessence Vineyard on Red Mountain. We have been so lucky to be included in the Shaw/Quintessence Vineyards over the last eight years. Marshall Edwards is the outstanding vineyard manager and Dick and Wendy Shaw are the pioneering owners. We have barrel sampled the Cabs over the last year and “yummy!” was the consistent response from everyone.
