Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

Good medium ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille, tar and smoke. Rich, dense and fine-grained, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of dark berries, smoke and crushed rock. Has the mid-palate stuffing to support its serious tannic spine.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is not far behind. The tannins are slightly firmer and the wine is very full-bodied with pure black currants, a more muscular style, and a big, rich, elegant, promising personality. The 2008 will benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar and should last for two decades.

Combines ripe, fleshy, concentrated blueberry, plum, anise, mineral, dried herb, black licorice and tea in a full-bodied, elegant style. Firms on the finish.

purely domestic wine report | 91

Very much an aberration of what came before, as it is a full point lower in alcohol. That may contribute to the brighter red character in the wine, red currant instead of black, cherries instead of blackberry. I have no doubt it will age as nicely as the others and may outlast them all.

About This Producer


Ron and Anita Wornick purchased the last un-developed parcel from the original Meadowood development in 1995 and began the nearly decade-long process of clearing the rocks from what would eventually be their home and vineyard. The winery gets its name from a granite slab sculture that is the focal point of the compound.The first vines were planted in 1995 and the premiere release of the David Abreu-developed property is 2005. Wornick's background is in food science and his company was selected by the US military to produce the MRE (Meals, Ready to Eat) that revolutionized food delivery in the field. Additionally, over the last thirty years he and Anita have developed one of the most important contemporary craft collections in the world. The winemaking team is Aaron Pott, assisted by Roy Piper.
