($135; 48% each cabernet sauvignon and merlot, plus 4% cab franc) Good full, deep ruby. Lovely floral lift to the aromas and flavors of cassis, licorice and violet. Supple and light on its feet-and likely to fill in with more time in bottle. This represents a barrel selection intended to make an earlier-drinking wine. Carrying a moderate 13.5% alcohol.

The 2006 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard (a 630-case blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc) displays classic aromas of pain grille, espresso roast, black currants, mocha, and chocolate presented in a full-bodied, deep, textured, impressively pure style. The oak is restrained, the acidity noticeable, but not tart, and the tannins substantial, but sweet.

Elegant, understated and medium-bodied, with a mix of spice, red currant, black cherry and subtle herbal notes that are complex and concentrated, picking up black olive and wild berry flavors on the finish. Fine-grained tannins are nicely integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Site Blog: Vinography: A Wine Blog Inky garnet in the glass, this blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc has a nose of violets, cedar, and anise aromas. In the mouth it is suede smooth with beautiful tannins, and lush black cherry fruit. Great acidity makes for excellent balance and promises of longevity in the dark undertones of wet dirt that wax loamy into the long finish. 750 cases made.
