10 Year Retrospective

 

2007

Cabernet Sauvignon 75%; Cabernet Franc 15%; Merlot 2%; Petit Verdot 5%; Malbec 3%

Our first vintage is just opening up now. Dark fruit, nice entry richness with great structure throughout. Drink 2019 – 2029

 

2008

Cabernet Sauvignon 81%; Cabernet Franc 9%; Merlot 2%; Petit Verdot 5%; Malbec 3%

With more Cabernet Sauvignon than the previous vintage, this wine is still showing wonderful richness with firm tannins. Drink 2019 – 2032

 

2009

Cabernet Sauvignon 63%; Cabernet Franc 2%; Merlot 27%; Petit Verdot 3%; Malbec 5%

The most opulent release yet – and the highest percentage of Merlot. Black fruit, subtle herb, luscious mouth-feel. Drink 2019 – 2030

 

2010

Cabernet Sauvignon 65%; Cabernet Franc 16%; Merlot 15%; Petit Verdot 3%; Malbec 1%

Opulent like 2009 but with more heft, this wine shows wonderful power, complexity, and deftness throughout. Drink 2019 – 2035

 

2011

Cabernet Sauvignon 62%; Cabernet Franc 14%; Merlot 19%; Petit Verdot 3%; Malbec 2%

Challenging vintage led to wine with abundance of black fruit, acidic tension, power, grace and flavor. Drink 2019 – 2037

 

2012

Cabernet Sauvignon 72%; Cabernet Franc 14%; Merlot 10%; Petit Verdot 4%

First of three magnificent vintages. Dark fruit, opulent entry, round and structured mid-palate, great length and firmness on finish.

Drink 2020 – 2035

 

2013

Cabernet Sauvignon 50%; Cabernet Franc 30%; Merlot 15%; Petit Verdot 3%; Malbec 2%

First Cabernet Franc-heavy vintage; still opening to reveal dark fruit, significant tannin and lively acidity and elegance from Franc.

Drink 2022 – 2037

 

2014

Cabernet Sauvignon 50%; Cabernet Franc 35%; Merlot 10%; Petit Verdot 5%

More sinew than 2013, great acidity carries dark fruit to long finish highlighted by significant tannin and freshness. Drink 2023 – 2037

 

2015

Cabernet Sauvignon 80%; Cabernet Franc 10%; Merlot 5%; Petit Verdot 5%

Significant dark fruit, entry tannin, and un-evolved aromas, showing complexity hidden beneath youthful exuberance for years. Drink 2025 – 2040

 

2016

Cabernet Sauvignon 59%; Cabernet Franc 27%; Merlot 9%; Petit Verdot 5%

 

Reticent dark fruit and youth hide immensely complex wine that will show great balance, heft, and age-ability. Drink 2027 – 2042
