This wine is among one of Neyers' best ever, with a bright fresh Cabernet aroma of wild cherries, chocolate, and fresh tobacco leaf. This vintage marked the 25th anniversary of their Conn Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. Those vines are entering the most important phase of their lifespan. After an extended maceration of almost 45 days, the tank was drained and pressed, and the new wine racked to 60-gallon French oak barrels, 40% of them new. They bottled the wine 18 months later with neither fining nor filtration. Clearly one of their best wines ever produced and it stands as a legitimate Vin de Garde.
