2011 Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon: $140

Intensely dark purple in color this vintage the wine is big and very concentrated. Aromas of raspberries and vanilla bean are complemented by dark chocolate and licorice. Layers of allspice, clove and cassis are also apparent. Upon tasting the wine is very viscous with darker fruit flavors to match the vanilla and pure black peppercorn emerges. The tannins are quite firm with great acidity to back it up. Although some bottle bouquet will begin to develop after ten years this is an ager. For those with patience, this wine will progress gracefully for the next 20 years (2033).

    2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District -- $75

    This opaque wine currently shows crushed violets, cocoa nibs and mixed black cooking spices. Some of the subtle minerality is only beginning to show. The palette is very plush and darker small berry fruit carries through here. Very firm chalky tannins begin to build on the palette, which is backed by firm acid. The 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot bring extra levels of complexity to this wine. This is a deeper and firmer Cabernet than in previous years, a true classic mountain wine that will take time to show its best, 11-13 years (2024-2026).  Alcohol:14.1%

The wine is quite plush with concentrated raspberry and more gravel mineral tones on the palette. The tannins this year are very firm, with natural mountain acid to balance demanding some time in the bottle to show its best.
