Winemaker's Notes

An incredible price on a magnum of this top-tier Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. From what many belive to be a lighter style of vintage, BV did an excelling job with this wine. Drinking beautifully right - very Bordeauxesque. An excellent value, drink this while your 2001 and 2002 George de Latour's are aging in the cellar.

Deep black cherry, black olive and complex, mineral-licorice aromas reflect classic Rutherford. Well balanced, the finish features the minerality and structure typical of the vineyard.

"Still young and jammy, with dark purple color and great heaps of cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit, overlaid with plush, vanilla-tinged oak. There's an enormous depth of flavor in the mouth, rich and jammy, with fruity, chocolate notes. The tannins are evident now in this very dry wine. It is a cellar candidate; a very good wine, but not a great vintage."
-Wine Enthusiast

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,...
