(From 2010 Vintage) Aromatics of dusted summer blackberries and crème de cassis. This stellar Cabernet Sauvignon a blend from our Calistoga Amoenus Vineyard provides plush, soft and round, dark cherry tones, which is deftly balanced by the brightness of Cabernet Sauvignon from our famous Oakville vineyards. This wine is richly complex, while amazingly dense and smooth in the mouth. Cigar box, and hedonistic density spill forth. The perfect balance of dense dark chocolate, black fruit and roasted tobacco leaf comingle
Very well balanced. Nose is a bit light, but its a nice big Napa cab that will age very nicely, or can be enjoyed immediately. Finish lingers long enough to really enjoy it, but isn't as long now as it will hopefully be in a few years
Red fruit, mint and toasty notes Great finish
