proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Reserve is made to age for 20 - 30 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55 - 57 degrees in a vibration and light free environment.

The 2000 vintage marks a change for our Reserve program. As always, our Reserve will only be produced in vintages we deem worthy and capable of producing such a wine. However, we have decided to not limit ourselves to producing only a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. The goal with our Reserve is to produce simply the finest, most hedonistic wine possible, regardless of varietal content. We’ve come to realize that there may be years where the best blend isn’t necessarily more than 75% Cabernet Sauvingnon, although this variety will always be a firm foundation for the wine. Our 2000 Reserve reveals beautifully deep color and a bright, high tone nose of ripe fruits, cedar, and spicy oak-influenced vanillin. This is a tightly wound wine with long aging potential that will be immediately pleasing as well.
