Winemaker's Notes

The first vintage, produced in 1986, established this wine as an instant Napa Valley classic. Select Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc and aged in no greater than 60% new French oak. For close to three decades, this standard-bearer has consistently shown impressive structure and velvety berry flavors.

  • Decanter
    (From 1997 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Full-bodied and ultra ripe but with great depth, structure and a long finish to give a sense of classic proportion. Sweet blackcurrant fruit, liquorice, raspberry and coffee aromas. Rich texture, firm structure, incredible flavours.
  • Wine Spectator
    (From 1997 Vintage) "Tremendous flavor, dark, ripe, rich and packed with black cherry, currant, anise, cedar and spice. Finishes with firm but deliciously well-integrated tannins. Best from 2003 through 2012. 2,400 cases made."
