Description
Scion is the signature red wine from this world famous estate vineyard. It is made from fruit grown in well-drained, low vigor volcanic soils, aged in 100% French oak barrels and nurtured by one man, winemaker Kevin Warren. The 2011 Scion is once again predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and is a hybrid between California and Bordeaux styles, structured and balanced with fruit and spice. For over a decade, Kevin has selected the finest lots to represent the style of each vintage to create this blend. Our grapes and his care have resulted in Scion repeatedly receiving enthusiastic reviews from wine critics, the wine trade, and consumers alik

Winemaker Tasting Notes:
The Scion is a Bordeaux blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon from our hillside blocks. This wine has a dark scarlet hue and aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, tanned leather, and black tea. Subtle cocoa nib and vanilla notes fill the palate resulting from 26 months in French oak. This is a delicately structured vintage with refined tannins.
