Like any new winery this is a work in progress and the 2008 shows slightly better than the 2007 - but don't dismiss the 2007.

Like any new winery this is a work in progress and the 2008 shows slightly better than the 2007 - but don't dismiss the 2007. Loads of black cherry black currant licorice and spring flowers are present in this mid-weight elegant stylish wine which offers up sweet tannin in a nice framework with a well-balanced mouthfeel. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years.

Exhibits complex layers of ripe cherry blackberry and currant with touches of mocha-laced oak that are woven together nicely. Full-bodied firming midpalate and ending with a long persistent finish. Drink now through 2020... Exhibits complex layers of ripe cherry blackberry and currant with touches of mocha-laced oak that are woven together nicely.

from a steep rocky site behind Stelzner Vineyards that winemaker Celia Welch describes as atypical for its appellation) Good saturated bright ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry blueberry mint and minerals... from a steep rocky site behind Stelzner Vineyards that winemaker Celia Welch describes as atypical for its appellation) Good saturated bright ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry blueberry mint and minerals. Silky on entry then tighter but still pliant in the middle with the black and blue fruit and mint flavors carrying through. Shows some Stags Leap dark chocolate character but this is distinctly more rocky and minerally than earthy in character. I like this firmly tannic cabernet's restrained sweetness but it calls for at least a few years of cellaring.
