The 2018 vintage was the perfect vintage to start a new project with. The weather was ideal for ripening Cabernet with a mild spring, a long warm summer, and glorious fall. Harvested mid-October, this wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from clone 685 planted on red volcanic soils just off the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Stags Leap District. It was aged in 100% new French Oak from Taransaud for 22 months prior to bottling.
For many cultures the deer is a sacred animal symbolizing independence and pride as well as being a guide for spiritual journeys. For our wines, the red deer of Scotland is a symbol of the freedom to express our interpretation of classic regions in a new and exciting way while celebrating the genealogical history of our families

Darkly hued purple with a crimson red rim, the wine is intensely perfumed with aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate, and strawberry fruit leather. Smooth yet structured tannins balance with an acidity that brightens the opulently flavored palate of red currants, black tea, dusty sage, and brambly blackberries. It was aged in 100% new French Oak from Taransaud for 22 months prior to bottling.
