Winemaker's Notes

Our 1997 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-woven styling of concentrated black cherry fruit and dark, plummy aromas. Black berry, dark chocolate, and vanilla bean, lace across the palate and echo the aromatic interplay so evident in the nose. Tannins are firm and full-bodied with the chewy texture that means bigger and better things as the wine moves to maturity. An elongated finish with a mix of berry and chocolate, slowly glides from the palate to memory. All in all, a young turk of a Cabernet, full of flavor and promise.

Food Pairings: Rich read meat dishes with sauces such as rib eye steak with pepper sauces, or carnitas with tomatia salsa, rich cheddar and brie cheeses and a bit of crusty bread also makes for a hardy harmony.
