Coliseum Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Extremely low yields allowed this vineyard to trump the vintage and produce a very prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon. Inky black to the core, dark berry aromas with spice tones intertwine and flow into a rush of dark fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate. There is an eager sense of energy infused in this wine that lends one to think that the vines were happy with this growing season. The complex and layered finish is an array of cassis, dried herbs and faint amber notes that are surrounded by plush but subdued tannins. While in need of some bottle age, a suggested decant is recommended if you choose to consume it within 5 years, and age it for 10 or more years to reveal its true essence.
All 2011 wines will ship in Fall 2013.
