Cabernet Sauvignon, Moon Mountain District 


This vintage was as vexed as the previous year for many growers. Cold and wet with a calamitous heat spell near harvest. Once again, we outfoxed Mother Nature without second- guessing her. By thinning our crops early we were able to achieve ripeness without having to gamble on the weather. This wine is a conspicuous departure from 2009. Much darker in color, more textured, with lusher fruit. Currants, blackberries, plums and cedar on the nose – aromas that are at once distinct and seamless. Very consistent from the nose to the mouth. Quite round, with cherry and berry fruits turning strawberry.
