The wine displays amazingly deep dark color. Aromas include dark, ripe cherries with a touch of cassis, licorice and brambly sage. The new French oak adds a bit of mocha toastiness. On the palate the wine is very powerful with firm but approachable tannins, great complexity and a long finish.

Waves of red and black currant preserves unfold slowly here, supported by well-embedded tar, licorice root and singed mesquite notes. Shows serious heft, but cut and fresh acidity line the finish. A late iron detail checks in, keeping this grounded. Best from 2022 through 2032. 450 cases made.

Winemaker Joel Aiken has sourced from two stellar vineyards here: Morisoli Vineyard in Rutherford and Judy Jordan's Sage Ridge Vineyard high in the eastern hills of Howell Mountain. Crunchy, high-toned cassis and red currant lift an earthy undertone of dusty dark chocolate and black olive, finding plenty of length and full-bodied grace.

Damp earth, leafy herbs, leather, and black cherry notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which has a Bordeaux-like vibe, medium body, good acidity, and a clean finish. It has plenty of charm as well as purity, and I suspect it will keep for a decade.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Small Lot sports a deep garnet-purple color and notes of baked black cherries, prunes and underbrush plus wafts of unsmoked cigars and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a good amount of baked black berries flavors with a chewy backbone and rustic finish.
