Winemaker's Notes

Rich and polished, with layers of plush fruit nicely framed by toasty oak. Well balanced, displaying forward aromas of black fruit, cranberry, lavender, chocolate, ginger, Asian spice and light wisps of tobacco and sage. The delicate violet and blue fruit qualities of Cabernet Franc are prettily evident. A smooth, velvety finish rounds out this inviting wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Ultrarich and polished, with layers of plush plum, black cherry, currant and spice. Picks up anise, sage, herb and toasty oak flavors, finishing with firm tannins."

"This is one of Napa's most promising Cabernets of the vintage. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with licorice and spice box. The wine is seamless, elegant, and intense with plenty of up-front fruit, but not the muscle and overall structure of the 1999. It possesses a strong mid-palate and length, something many 2000s lack. Drink it when released and over the following 12-15 years."
91 Points

"Full ruby-red. Big, rich, perfumed aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, violet, menthol, coffee and loam. Rich and mellow but vinous, with fruit-driven flavors of currant, blueberry and boysenberry. Nicely full in the middle but slightly lean on the back end, with a bit of acidity showing. "In 2000 we benefitted by being on the valley floor, with lighter soils," noted winemaker Rosemary Cakebread."

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...

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,...
