The velvet blue-purple ink in your glass let's you know you're about ready to taste something spectacular. Your nose is introduced to aromas of ginger snap cookies, cedar, blackberry jam and vanilla. The immediate impact on the mouth is a masculine tannic structure balanced by cooked blueberry cobbler, more vanilla and baking spice and smoked bacon notes. Full and mouthwatering throughout, it has a lingering peppermint finish.
The fruit for our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Kenefick Ranch Vineyard in Calistoga. The vineyard is blessed with rich volcanic soils and the most extreme swing between daytime and nighttime temperatures of all the Napa Valley regions, which leads to more concentration of flavor within the berries. Only 50 cases produced.
