Wine Details

    2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Vineyard: The vineyards are located on the eastern Vaca Mountains of Napa Valley near lake Hennessey also know as Prichard Hill although not a separate AVA it has a strong identity for big mountain Cabernets. The soils up there are red and rocky with low vigor and low water table resulting in stressed vines and concentrated flavors. Tasting Notes: The color is dark ruby red and nearly opaque. The aromas are dark baked cherries-blackberry followed by baking spices of mace and brown sugar-molasses and notes of earth-forest floor. The palate is bold and rich with layered fine grain tannin and massive concentration.There are flavors of dark chocolate, candy licorice and offers a long finish with a dark cherry and cassis fruit. Barrel Program: 28 months in 100% new French barrels. Racked and blended prior to bottling. 750 ml $80/bottle 75 cases produced.
