(From 2005 Vintage) It is a plush and sophisticated Cabernet Sauvignon balancing age-worthy acidity and integrated tannins with a soft, fleshy texture. Classic aromas of black olive, black currant, earth and mint are echoed on the palate alongside mineral undertones. The oak profile lends depth and nuance to this elegantly structured wine.
(From 2007 Vintage) From its signature elements of olive, earth, black truffle and thyme to its enticing layers of black currant, caramel and dark red fruit, this wine possesses a robust structure and a finish that seems to linger for an eternity. To add even more depth, complexity and compelling mid-palate structure, the final blend incorporates Cabernet Franc.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesDeep, well-defined and wonderfully constant, ripe currant fruit makes this one our choice of the Duckhorn bunch, and, while a rich and heady working with lots of meat on its bones, it is also a neatly composed wine whose integral tannins are buffered by extract to spare. It is, in fact, sufficiently supple and fruity as to tempt drinking now, but we see it getting better with age and urge four or five years of cellaring.
