Presenting a deep cherry color, it combines the best of the varietals from the estate. It has an extremely intense, elegant, and expansive nose combined with complex aromas of blackberries, boysenberries, vanilla bean, plums, and figs. Powerful on the palate, with an excellent tannic structure, substantial flavors of ripe fruits and wild berries and a lingering finish. Great served with venison bolognese sauces, salpicón, smoked ribs, and osso bucco.

Concentrated, intense aromas of graphite, blackberry, spice and earth notes set up a rich palate that's registering at max ripeness. Gigantic blackberry, baked black plum and toasted flavors finish dark and lush. This blend of Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Syrah is a big-wine lover's dream come true. Drink through 2023.

This solid red shows good concentration, with muscular tannins and balsamic acidity supporting a thick texture. Plum, kirsch, espresso and loamy earth flavors mingle, giving this an austere but harmonious character. Drink now through 2022. 20,400 cases made.

The rather pricey 2010 Emeritvs is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah from their oldest vineyards in Smart-Dyson and Lyra trellises, aged for two years in French oak barrels. The nose shows a combination of what I found in the Svmma Varietalis and the Cabernet Sauvignon, mixing notes of tempera paint, fountain pen ink, leather and cured meat with unusual aromas of soy and Worcestershire sauce and a metallic hint with undertones redolent of anchovies. The palate is very dry, as the glycerin seems to be receding, like slowly drying out. Not a great showing today.
