We're very excited about this single barrel production offered exclusivley to the Silenus Vintners Wine Club. Yay for us and thanks Jason!

 

Vanquish… to overcome in battle : subdue completely

Muscular Cabernet that will need four or five years to peak. Concentrated fruit has a brawny tannic structure. Cedar, vanilla and dark chocolate from toasty oak will integrate with bottle age. There’s noteworthy intensity and focus to the flavors, then the structure amps up in the finish. Has outstanding length and pervasive earthiness and minerality. Try this in 2015 and cellar it with confidence until at least 2025.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a blend of Coombsville and Calistoga vineyards.

Serving Tip - Dec 2012
Jason shared with us that he's prefering this after a 24 hour decant or, if time is short, through an aerator one to two times. So open it up, let it breath for a day and it will be even better on day two.
