Editors ChoiceAn enormous Cabernet, but it’s not simply the power of its fruit that’s so impressive. Shows massive blackberry, blueberry, creme de cassis and oak flavors packed into profoundly beautiful tannins. The fruit is so sweet that it’s suprising how dry the finish is. The winemaker, Ted Henry, also is at the helm of Jarvis. This young Cabernet should develop over the next dozen years, at least, in a good cellar.

"Ted Henry (Jarvis) turned out an impressive textbook Cabernet for his own label from Coombsville-area fruit. The acidity's a bit forward - in a good way - giving a tension to notes of tobacco, blackberry leaves and coffee bean. The oak is subtle, and taut blackberry fruit is held together by firm tannins." - San Francisco Chronicle 5/21/10
