The 2014 Arise entices with aromas of black currant, freshly-picked summer blackberries, cedar stick, and roasted clove. With flavors of licorice, pipe tobacco, Bing cherry, and nutty fig, this wine has a richly layered mid-palate that is complimented by soft texture, good density, and a long, lingering finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis blends 38% Merlot with 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc. Together these find a healthy companionship of wood, cedar, currant and dried herb, allowing the two Cabernets to speak loudest. Lightly spicy nutmeg and clove linger around well-defined layers of cherry and vanilla.

Wine SpectatorPrecise and well-framed, with currant and crushed stone aromas and layered, fairly dense flavors of dried cherry, tomato leaf and cedar. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2017. 6,000 cases made.
