Winemaker's Notes

95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, .5% Petite Verdot

Complex black cherry, berry and plum fruit characters, interwoven with anise, clove, and black pepper. Rich and graceful, with a full mid-palate and a lengthy finish, complemented by toasted oak and cocoa powder tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Marked by herb, dill, cedar, sage and dried currant flavors. Full-bodied and well-structured, both supple and tight at points, showing its subtle tannic strength on the finish. Drink now through 2017. "
92 Points

"It lacks the charm of what is clearly a better vintage, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (at $30 less a bottle, that’s worth noting). A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2007 is a winner. It is a luscious, sweetly tannic, classic Napa Cabernet offering notes of white chocolate, black currants and spice box, and a medium-bodied, supple, sexy style. Drink it over the next 7-10 years."

One of my all-time favorite Cabs - Classic Napa. Dark garnet color; Robust body; Well-integrated tannins; dark fruit, currants, some spice. Persistent finish. Drinks well now....will only get better in a few years. Great bottle of wine at an awesome price...highly recommend!

I tried this cab based on a friend's recommendation who regularly visits the vinyard. Its the best "tip" I've been given in a very long time. An amazing wine: tight, complex structure yet subtle, great finish and elegant.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. 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. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
