Winemaker's Notes

This 3.5 acre vineyard located in St. Helena is planted to all three varietals found in this delicious Bordeaux blend. This vintage produced a more polished and refined wine than the 2008, with layers of effortless, racy fruit that flow from this seamless, compelling wine.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"This red is tight and firm, with a cedary oak touch to the dried currant, black licorice, sage and underbrush notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2026. 400 cases made."
94 Points

"Good red-ruby. Mellow aromas of currant, black raspberry, mocha and chocolate. Lush, sweet, deep and rich, with enticing sweetness to its dark berry and chocolate flavors. Picks up a truffley element as it opens in the glass. As plush and ripe as this is, it's not at all heavyhanded. Finishes ripely tannic, sweet and long."
