Red Mountain has long been Brian's favorite source for Cabernet Sauvignon and the E & E Shaw Vineyard has ranked near the top since Brian Carter Cellars began purchasing their grapes in 2007. Owned and Operated by Ed and Eve Shaw, the vineyard is located a mile east of Klipsun (Kiona and Ciel du Cheval are between the two and the four of them all make spectacular wines). This is our first ONE from this Vineyard, this spectacular wine was made possible by the coolness of the vintage.
Tasting Notes: Very dark in color, the wine has classic varietal characters of cassis and blackberry with added notes of cedar and coffee which ring from the nose to through the palate. A Bordeaux like balance of well-integrated tannins and acids shows off a wine of both dimension and charm.
