Winemakers Notes

The 2021 growing season was blessed by late winter rains that

replenished our soil's moisture as the vines emerged from

dormancy. A cold spring led to a slower start for the vines, but we

avoided any frost danger. Summer growing conditions were

exceptional, with consistent weather and blue skies ushering in a

Goldilocks summer that was not too hot and not too cold. We are

thrilled with the quality of the grapes from the outstanding 2021


The grapes were fermented in 1⁄2 ton macro bins and manual punch

downs were done numerous times daily through fermentation. The

wine was aged in French oak for 24 months (50% New) and bottled

in November 2023.

Harvest date: September 14th, 2021 with 75 cases produced.

Tasting Notes

Our 2021 wine is a deeply colored Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose,

it showcases rich blackberry fruit, espresso, and tobacco.

The complex palate bursts with dark cherry and blackberry flavors

surrounded by earth and cigar boxes.

The tannins are soft, elegant, and balanced. This wine is designed

to be drunk upon release but can age gracefully for a decade or


The wine opens with an exotic mix of black cherry, black currant,

and hints of herbs and warm spices. Blackberries and cherries

tease the palate before exploding into a broad wine and mouth-

filling with soft tannins, elegant and focused from the beginning to

the long lingering finish.

Food Suggestions

This wine has the balance to age gracefully for a decade.

Decanting this wine before drinking is recommended.
