Winemaker's Notes

This sumptuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and ripe fig coupled with seductive loam, leather, dark chocolate and spice scents. Full and well-rounded on the palate, its lavish blackberry, black cherry and dark chocolate flavors are framed by powerful, yet supple tannins and extend into a long, lush finish.

    (From 2001 Vintage) If boasting a fair degree of Napa Valley richness in its first nose, the wine reveals slightly weedy, green bean notes as part of its broader background of cherry, chocolate and caramel. Fairly full in body and somewhat rounded in early mouthfeel, it seems to stumble just a bit towards the backend and lose just a bit of its fruity continuity and energy.
