Product Description

A lush Cabernet Sauvignon with vanilla, cassis, mint and leather on the nose. The palate is leathery and full of red fruit, dried figs, and vanilla, finishing dry and long. A big wine that can age with the best of them. 

Winemaker's Notes: “For the first time in the history of ERA, the 2011 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is because 2011 was the coldest vintage in 25 years, yielding wines with lower alcohol and higher acidity. In order to maintain ripeness, concentration and complexity, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon from all of our Single Vineyards into ERA 2011. This wine represents an amazing balance and has a great potential for aging.” -Jean Hoefliger

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyards: Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper, Beckstoffer to Kalon, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, and Stagecoach Vineyard.

Production: 925 Cases

Robert Parker:  "Alpha Omega’s flagship 2011 ERA (a selection of their finest barrels) is full and rich with slightly more tannin and structure than its siblings. This impressively endowed wine is similar to several of the single vineyard offerings. Like the Stagecoach Vineyard effort, it is made in a more backward, brooding style, especially for a 2011. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 12-15 years.Rating: 90+"
