Our focus is Cabernet Sauvignon from two prestigous vineyards in Northern California — Yoeman Vineyard, located on the northeastern slope in the Alexander Valley, and Game Ranch Vineyard, located on old river bottom on the eastern bench of the Silverado Trail. Both showcase the optimum silhouettes of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley and Napa Valley.
Tasting Note: Deep garnet; aromas of dark plum, black cherry, cassis, nutmeg, vanilla and dark chocolate. Shows concentrated flavors of black cherry, blackberry, plum, cassis, spice, tobacco, and chocolate. Rich and full-bodied, nice wood framing, sumptuous texture, supple tannin finish. My favorite vineyard from an exceptional vintage.
Tasting Note: This vintage shows dark ruby red color; ripe berry, cassis, and black pepper aromas. On the palate a smooth entry is followed by black cherry, blueberry, and spice. Fine, supple tannins carry all the way through the finish. Notes of chocolate, flint and graphite linger.
