(70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc)
Winemakers’ Tasting Notes:

Inviting aromas of toasted caramel, vanilla, sweet juicy red raspberry, dried strawberry, cranberry, pomegranate, cocoa bean, cedar, clove, tobacco. A classy mouthfeel with a rich concentration of bright red fruits, medium to full-bodied, long tasty sweet, silky finish. Has aged well, and is drinking great right now. Pairs exceptionally with holiday rib-roast and sautéed mushrooms. Decant & enjoy over the next 15 years.

Harvest Notes:

The 2009 harvest brought bright fruit with pure varietal character. The entire Napa Valley experienced a mild, relatively cool growing season, but with everything working in unison to give vines and grapes the best scenario possible. The fruit enjoyed extended hang time, producing wines with very concentrated flavors and good aging potential. Although on the later side for harvest, the 2009 vintage was another fantastic year in Napa Valley.

Critical reviews:

Wine Enthusiast: “…Smooth and complex in tannins, with balancing acidity and an incredible array of flavors, including blackberry, black currant, cherry, chocolate, dried herb, smoky oak and spice…” (95 points)

International Wine Cellar: “…This really pleasures the mouth.  Beautifully made and graceful wine with a very long, edge-free finish…” (94+ points)

The California Grapevine: “Big rich, supple, spicy, cherry and red berry fruit flavors.” Highly Recommended
