Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Aromas of dark sweet cherry, black currant, dark plum, integrated spice and toast notes and some dried herb. Very sweet, exuberant fruit including red currant, green tea, dried rose petals, delicate fresh herbs and oak notes of toffee and cigar box. Sweet black fruit on the entry opens to a rich, velvety mid-palate. The weight and concentration in this wine are balanced by flavors of dark ripe cherry, berry and plum, along with cocoa, spice and subtle dried herb.

    (2003 Vintage) 88% Cabernet Sauvignon; 8% Merlot; 4% Other. Suggesting herbs and toasty barrels as much as it does black cherry fruit, this blend of Cabernet and related varieties hails from several of the top vineyards in the Napa Valley but still runs into the limits of the vintage. A touch chubby in feel and noticeably tannic, it falls just short of full commendation.
