2017 Estate Reserve
As always, our goal with this wine is to simply make the best red wine possible from our estate vineyards—no varietal designation—just pure estate greatness. This wine is immediately seductive with red fruit, rose petal, sandalwood and dried herbes de Provence. Mostly from our estate McQueen Vineyard, there is an elegance to the power of this wine that is ultra-balanced, and rich. The addition of Petit Verdot plays nicely with the Cabernet Sauvignon in elegance and power. This wine lingers with a small sense of oak sweetness and has a really sexy finish. I am very proud of this wine. Drink now through 2045.
