    • The Cabernet grapes for this wine were grown at the Caton Vineyards located in the Moon Mountain District on the eastern foothills of the Sonoma Valley in rocky clay soils with a southern exposure ideal for growing these grapes. Aged 22 months in fine french oak barrels.

      The nose is intense aroma packed with dark fruit consisting of black raspberry and cherry. Hints of cocoa with cloves compliment the fruit. One thing I find with John's wines is that I have just as much pleasure swirling and sniffing as I do tasting.

      The mouth is luscious with the red and black raspberry so juicy followed by vanilla bean and cocoa powder. A slight hint of clove but faint. When I taste the fruit it takes me back to my younger days when my friend and I would harvest raspberry for his mother to make jam and pie. Funny thing those berries rarely made it back up the hill like this bottle which didn't last long either. The finish is soft, silky and elegant begging you to drink more.
