This is a new discovery for us, although the winery itself dates back to the 1870’s and boasts a wild history with stories of gold fever, land grabs, squatters, and murders. Just your typical California tale, really. History aside, we are obsessed with the present day restoration happening, and see a long, sustainable future if they keep putting out Cabernet like this one. Dark in color and generous in aromas, this opens with ripe damson plum wrapped in vanilla and some very subtle hints of thyme. Warm and plush in the mouth, it’s loaded with deep fruit flavors that slowly give way to a beautifully floral mid-palate. A judicious use of oak brings in some delicate notes of chocolate, clove, and a bit of toast on the finish. The silken tannins melt onto the palate. So good.
