From the famous Rockpile Vineyard in Sonoma, this is everything you'd expect in a $100 California Cabernet - but about half the price!  The Weese brothers grow this blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot in two plots on Rockpile, ferment it warm, and then age it for 24 months in half-new, half-used, oak.  Dead young now, but already delivering classic aromas of cassis, cedar, tobacco and cocoa powder.  In the mouth, ripe and big, but with a very attractive elegant restraint, pumping out blackcurrant, black cherry, tobacco and cassis flavors through the midpalate and then finishing with firm, chewy, tannins and a hint of fresh leather.  Just 400 cases produced of this beauty that you can enjoy tonight with grilled steak or lamb or let mellow in cellar for 10+ years. Outstanding value for the quality.
