"This is an amazing vineyard in Sonoma Valley high on top of the Mayacamas Mountains in Glen Ellen. From the vines you can see both Bodega Bay and Mt. Tam and S.F. The grapes taste like dark cassis and mint. The Clone and root stock choices were perfect for this amazing location."

Sonoma Valley Wine and Food Critic, Robert Maoilriain

09 Cabernet Sauvignon:  Beautiful purple red cassis color. Nose is concentrated with ripe plum and cassis aromas but also some chocolate and coffee aromas.
Mouth is beautiful, luscious with a lot of wonderful aromas that lingers for a long time. The tannins are silky and nice with a nice sweet finish. This is a very nice wine.
