Wine Enthusiast Review
Grown on the winery's Adelaida Springs Ranch, which is 12 miles from the ocean at 1,700 feet in elevation, this is a rich and unctuous take on Cabernet that spent 20 months in new French oak. Hedonistic aromas of black cherry, cocoa, cappuccino and fudge cake lead to a palate that's expertly structured by polished tannins. Flavors of tiramisu and berry-compote sing on the palate.
This special selection focuses on very small lots of limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon, with a bit of Petit Verdot in the blend to enhance the structure of the finished wine. To achieve a balanced style with a rich character and refined mouthfeel, the wine was aged for 20 months in French oak barrels before bottling unfined and unfiltered.
