(From 2011 Vintage) Beautifully proportioned, with a rich mix of currant, blackberry, dried herb, mocha, cedar and tobacco flavors. This is also very tightly structured, worthy of a long decant or short-term cellaring.
(From 2009 Vintage) From the long, cool vintage of 2009, small hillside vineyards in Calistoga and Oak Knoll yielded a classic bottling of Napa Cabernet for us. Complex aromas center around fragrant, ripe boysenberry and dried currants with a hint of floral character and a kaleidoscope of sweet, oak forest spices, toffee and tobacco. Polished, fruitful and fresh the palate comes into beautiful focus with natural acidity, moderate tannins and a bit of baker's chocolate.
