90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Full-bodied with a deep red hue and flecks of purple, this wine boasts concentrated aromas of ripe berries, dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate, black tea, leather, tobacco, wild sage, fresh earth, and roasted nuts.  The palate is classic Cabernet with notes of ripe blackberry, fresh currants, dark plum and cherry with hints of balsamic, black trumpet mushrooms, and layers of rustic spice.  With its silky texture, supple tannins, firm structure and a lingering finish, this wine becomes more elegant, graceful, and complex as it opens up in the glass.

Displays a full tannin structure up front, yet finishes with a silky viscous texture. Drinks great now, and will easily go for a decade or more in your cellar.

Pairs well with grilled steaks, Osso Bucco, braised meats, dark chocolate desserts, and cigars by the fireplace.

Located in beautiful Glen Ellen, California, this area is known for its outstanding growing soils and climate. Cassata Vineyard rests along these gentle rolling hills. The entire property is managed bio-sustainably so that future generations can enjoy a pure and simple refuge in this isolated valley.

Aromas of fresh peach, Asian pear, citrus, and honeycomb to delight your senses.  The flavors are just as complex with hints of Madagascar vanilla followed by fresh lemon, green apple, wildflower honey, stone fruit, and a touch of lavender. The rich, dense texture is balanced by its juicy acidity, leading to great minerality and a long, satisfying finish.

Bold and berrylike, full-bodied and saturated with jammy blackberry and raspberry that coat the palate and give a luscious ripeness that keeps on giving.  Notes of stewed plums, Morello cherries and raspberry pie and spice, wild thyme and hoisin. The palate is laden with red and black berry layers, supported by chewy tannins.
