Gently handled and respectfully cellared in 60% new French oak for 26 months, the wine has a lifted, fragrant and complex nose of red and black currant, crushed leaves and spicy oak. The nose gives way to a soft entry and great purity and elegance on the palate: Graveyard Hill represents the expansive fruit and graceful palate structure at the core of the Clos Pegase Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyards.
89 Points, Wine Enthusiast:
"A rich and distinguished Cabernet with well-ripened flavors of black currants and cassis. There's a depth that impresses. The tannins are fairly thick and suggest mid-term cellaring. S.H." (6/1/2003)
