Background2008 was the last of the drought years in Napa Valley, and our Oakville Estate provided the perfect terroir to produce this prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark purple to the rim, scents of dark fruits, minerals and dark chocolate emanate from the glass. The palate is a rush of pure cassis-like liquor combined with intriguing notes of saddle leather and anise that are enveloped within mouthful of perfectly ripened tannins that are large scale but totally integrated. Like previous vintages of this wine, the mid palate and finish have an explosion of silky smooth blue and dark fruits and spice notes that flow off into a mile-long finish. Because this is the largest scaled wine from our Estate, we have ever produced, a decant is needed to enjoy it in its youth and look for it to age effortlessly for 10 -20 years.
