Vibrant aromas of candied cherry, brambleberry, sweet mint and black licorice intertwine seamlessly with aromas of toasted almond, cinnamon spice, and tobacco box. The palate shows a juicy core of red plum and cherry, perfumed by the distinct savory herb and floral notes that characterize our property. The bright, juicy nature of this wine is balanced by soft, velvety tannins that both coat the palate and support the minerally, refined finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific effort in a very challenging year. Welch gave the fruit a little more time on the skins and lowered the percentage of new barrels, an approach that worked nicely here. The 2011 stands out for its energy, focus and balance. It will be interesting to see where the wine goes over the coming year, but there is plenty of potential. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
