This is a wine of incredible flavor and textural intensity. The wine's tannins are overt and attack your palate upon release; however invigorating this may be in its youth, these sensations portend a long life ahead. The nature of this wine being its inaugural release will have us wanting to uncork and drink it at every turn, but patience will be rewarded.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (black label) is utterly magnificent. Towering and statuesque, the 2013 deftly balances ripeness, intensity and freshness, with suave tannins (for a big wine) and fabulous overall balance. A host of sweet red plum, pomegranate, spice, white pepper, crushed rocks and rose petal add the final shades of nuance. The 2013 is the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. The black label Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from parcels in the center of the estate planted on Cortina gravel.

Bold and assertive, generous and supple, with a mix of loamy earth, graphite, cedar, tobacco leaf and underbrush flavors. A powerful yet refined expression best served by short-term cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2030. 1,635 cases made.
