Winemaker's Notes

This bass-noted wine first exhibits aromas of violet, rich black earth and graphite, then cassis, red plum and dark chocolate. The entry is surprisingly lithe within the wine's ample structure, offering both generosity and gravitas. The tannins are ripe and chocolaty within a lengthy finish; expect immediate enjoyment as well as superb cellaring results.

"The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a classic bouquet of licorice, smoke, and toasty wood. Spicy, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and tasty, it is ideal for drinking over the next 5-8 years." 89 Points

Critical Acclaim

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
