A textbook vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon, highlighting the varietals regal combination of richness and refinement. Focused and more high-toned, with layers of fresh Bing cherry and black currant wrapped around a core of savory earth and cocoa. The youthful fruit intensity and polished tannins of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon are impeccably balanced, providing breadth and structure while scents of wild sage, lead pencil and star anise reveal the wines’ Mount Veeder components.

92 points Wine Spectator – Focused and fine-grained, with red and black currant paste flavors, flanked by singed alder and backed by a tug of loam through the finish. Frankly toasted on the finish, but there’s ample fruit to soak that up with some cellaring. Best from 2022 through 2032.
