Toast of the Coast

  • Decadent and complex, our Director's Cut Cabernet is fragrant with exotic notes of clove and toasted oak.
  • Aged primarily in French oak barrels, this wine will develop further for several more years.

2014 saw one of the earliest harvests on record and a continuation of drought in California. In spite of these variables, the vintage offered an outstanding crop of extremely high fruit quality because of the dry, warm weather. Our fruit achieved excellent concentration while remaining well balanced and textured with layers of complex flavors and supple tannins.

This vintage’s Cabernet Sauvignon is quite opulent with deep, dark flavors of fruit framed by firm tannins and rich oak character. Full-bodied and beautifully textured, this wine’s flavor complexity is heightened by the addition of Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Enjoy a luscious palate of blackberries, cherries, and cassis along with fragrant earthy minerals and notes of anise and cocoa. As the flavors build and flow, a toasted caramel impression at the end creates an alluring finish. Best with a few years of aging, but you can enjoy this wine now with 1 to 2 hours of decanting.
