(2012 Vintage) Dark red in color, this wine has notes of blackberry and mocha with hints of plum and sage. On the palate, the impeccably balanced wine is dark, fleshy and supple, with notes of espresso and bittersweet chocolate and a touch of black cherry on the finish.
Best 2010–2015. 93 pts winemaker's notes: This elegantly crafted, balanced wine is marked by fine, pure, ripe blackberry and cassis flavors and aromas with notes of spice, cedar and discreet vanilla set in a silky texture supported by refined tannins. "This is a dark, big, deeply flavored Cabernet whose tannic structure strongly suggests mid- to long-term aging. Bone dry, it has flashy flavors of black currants, dark chocolate and cedar. Very fine. If not longer in a proper cellar." 93 Points Wine Enthusiast March 2009 user reviews: Napa Native - Napa, CA This wine is a secret value. Just compare it to it's Napa neighbors, Cakebread for example which is right next door and you will see what a value it is @ $40. New owners took over three years ago and the quality has silently been going through the roof. Buy it now while you can still get it and before it is priced more like it's neighbors
