Winemaker's Notes: We believe that this Cabernet Sauvignon is a prime example of what we can do with this varietal in the Santa Ynez Valley. There have been quite a few skeptics over the years, from near and far, that felt our little valley just didn’t have what it takes to produce a quality Cab. It is true that we are a cooler region than Napa, but after trying this beauty, we hope one can see the limitless possibilities. With present yet elegant tannin, and driving acidity, this Cab will not just stand up to hearty dishes like Prime Rib and Lamb Stew, it will complement them with grace not normally seen from the world’s “big cabs.”    
Ageing Potential: Now-2030
Additional Info: Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the offspring of two old Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Franc (Father) and Sauvignon Blanc (Mother). The reason I believe it came to be in the lime-light is because of a metered amount of “Bordeaux characteristics” (anise, eucalyptus, tar, twigs) from its father, and the beautiful floral aromatics from its mother (dark florals like violets). Not to mention containing a significant amount of dark blue and black fruit (blackberry and blueberries), this varietal is what one might call “well rounded.”
