Wine Details

Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Our 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers wonderfully fragrant, complex aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit augmented by complementary scents of loam, spice-box, dark chocolate and toasty oak. Beautifully balanced and richly textured on the palate, its concentrated black cherry, wild berry, cassis and mocha flavors are supported by supple tannins and extend into a long, chocolate-y finish.

    Was very good and started out smooth with a blackberry taste. It had bold aftertaste.

    (2000 Vintage) 20% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc. As often seems the case for the Cabs of 2000, the aromas of this wine are nicely fruited, fairly deep and enriched with plenty of sweet oak spice. Once in the mouth, however, the wine proves to be ripe yet slightly hollow and lower in fruit than it is in oak. A little lean at the finish and never so rich as advertised, this is a pleasant but uncompelling wine whose reach exceeds its grasp.
