($90; includes 3% petit verdot and 2% malbec) Deep, bright, saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, chocolate and smoky oak. A fat, sexy fruit bomb of a cabernet, with a dominant flavor of black cherry. Mostly from late-ripening vines in the cool Coombsville area. In fact, at the time of a two-day heat spike in mid-September, said winemaker Mark Herold, the grapes were still at just 22o Brix, and the harvest ultimately took place mostly during the third week of October. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins.

Unusual cab, not terribly appealing.
