(2010 Vintage) Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant representation of Napa Valley Cabernet from a cool vintage. It presents an opaque garnet hue in the glass and reveals aromas of sandalwood and roasted meats. Flavors of vanilla, coffee beans and raspberries are buttressed by dusty tannins, firm acidity and a mouth-coating texture. Given proper cellaring, this wine should provide drinking pleasure through 2029.
supposed to be peaking was slightly tart needed some decent o2. after about 20 min wine settled - chocolate anise plum and spicy end notes not as full bodied as expected smooth drinking after it got more oxygen lacking in complexity did not fully meet peak expectations
Rich aromas and flavor. Perfect Cabernet.
By far the best I've had.
