Winemaker's Notes

Our estate Cabernet Sauvignon opens with scents of anise, sweet white (net) pepper, thyme flowers, blackberry jam, Chinese five spice and a hint of smoky oak. The first sip fills your mouth with bright, ripe black cherries, baker's chocolate, coffee and anise, with a satisfying softly smoky chewiness. This rich, ripe Cabernet closes with flavors of blackberry cobbler, black licorice, cracked black pepper, with a lingering finish of sweet flowering herbs.

Critical Acclaim

"Another winner from this Getty-affiliated winery. Has classic black-currant and cedar aromas, with a sharp streak of well-charred oak. Exceptionally pure and balanced; an example of impeccable winemaking. A little austere now, but really fine quality."
94 Points

"The ambitious 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses power, structure, and density. Spicy new oak competes with cassis in this full-bodied, moderately tannic wine."
90 Points

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. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
