Description

Complex and compelling, this generous wine reflects the diversity of great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, vibrant layers of red and black fruit mingle with hints of violet, dried herbs, black licorice and graphite. The flavors echo the aromas, with lovely black currant and licorice elements supported by firm, impeccably balanced, tannins and an excellent structure. Good acidity helps to carry the juicy dark fruit notes through to a long, satisfying finish. Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

92 Points Wine Spectator - Outstanding; a wine of superior character and style This is marked by a strong herb and oak mixture and framed by a lively burst of red currant, red licorice, dusty, cedary oak and licorice notes.

91 Points Wine & Spirits - A compelling wine of its region; a delicious, finessed expression of place.

90 Points
James Suckling - Mint and berry aromas with hints of spices. Medium body, firm tannins and a medium finish. No reason to wait. Drink now. Always excellent.
