Rich and complex, this wine begins with inviting aromas of cherry and ripe wild strawberry, combined with hints of wood smoke and toasted marshmallow from barrel aging. On the palate, juicy layers of brambleberry, black cherry and nectarine are supported by firm, yet refined, tannins and impressive weight. Excellent structure from the Cabernet draws this wine to a full, rich finish.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2014 Proprietary Red Wine checks in as a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Zinfandel and the rest Merlot that was brought up mostly in French oak (5% American). Spiced plums, incense, dried herbs, and cedar notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, charming, nicely textured 2014 that has enough depth and tannin to keep for a decade.

Wine SpectatorAn assertive style, with aggressive tannins and a dense core of herb and currant flavors. The tannins are challenging. Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2027. 13,400 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a thick full-bodied commingling of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Merlot. Soy, plum sauce and brambly blackberry rise on the palate. The grapes are a mix of mountain-grown and valley floor.
