Facing west toward Sonoma you can clearly see a gap in the mountain range that allows a cooling influence to creep in early every afternoon. Saturated ruby in color, the wine has a crystalline minerality that cuts through the entire experience. It has some nice savory notes of sweet tobacco, camphor and wild mint wrapped around a pure purple fruited core. It's not a weighty wine but one more driven by focus where all the elements present are very clearly delineated.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Amoenus flows across the palate with dark, jammy black fruit, licorice and tar. It shows good depth but the tannins lack a bit of polish relative to the best wines here. Today the 2009 comes across as a work in progress. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.
