This is filled with hot stone notes to the dried cherry, berry and wild spice flavors, backed by taut acidity. Cigar box and forest floor accents show midpalate, with dusty minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 13,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.

Earthy cassis and berry aromas lead to a firm palate with tightness brought on by drying tannins and notable oak grain. Black-fruit flavors are accented by olive, tobacco and dark-spice notes, while this warm-year Cabernet is steady and attentive on the finish. Drink through 2023.
