This "Old Vines" Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly complex showing the sophistication, balance and structure that come from such extraordinary "old vine" vineyards. It expresses the purity and typicity of fully mature cabernet sauvignon that can only be achieved from old vine fruit. The color is dark purple with elevated aromas of cedar, baking spice, graphite and cassis. Flavors of black fruits blend beautifully with the exotic spice of new oak. The texture is silky yet firm with integrated tannins offering a rich, lingering finish. With proper storage this wine should easily age for ten years or more.

The gem in the lineup is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines, undeniably the most classic and age-worthy in the lineup. Blackcurrants, charcoal, graphite, and chocolate notes, as well as ample minerality, all emerge from this full-bodied, rich, concentrated effort. It needs 2-4 years of bottle age but is a beautiful wine with a long life ahead of it.

One of the state's best bottles year after year, this delivers herb, blackberry, woodspice and vanilla bean aromas. The palate is tightly wound and impeccably balanced, with a mixture of fruit and barrel flavors that show depth. Made with the future in mind, it will be best from 2025-2032.

Saturated bright ruby. Very rich, inviting aromas of blueberry liqueur and dark chocolate lifted by a violet topnote. Plush dark berry and spice flavors convey a lovely chocolatey sweetness, with the terrific old-vines concentration giving the wine a layered mouth feel. Finishes with substantial velvety, tooth-dusting tannins and slowly building, chocolatey length, with notes of cassis and graphite minerality arriving late. Other than the Petit Verdot, which was planted in 2001, there are no vines in this wine that were planted later than 1982. Mott finds this wine approachable already but says it should be at its best in another five or six years, after it loses some of its baby fat.

Firm and compact, with complex black cherry, olive and licorice flavors, framed by persistent tannins. Best from 2019 through 2023. 600 cases made.
