Winemaker's Notes

The advantage of being an Estate Winery are never more apparant than in a year like 1999. Facing a late, cool growing season, Estate vineyards can better afford to reduce yields to a minimum, ensuring ripe, if meager crop. A wine of classic styling, with pretty blueberry, cassis and strawberry fruit wed to moderate but firm tannins, and yet none of the herbaceous notes which mark an under-ripe Cabernet.

A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon (68% from Palisades Vineyard and 24% Graveyard Hill), spiced with Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc from the Home Ranch, this elegant release continues the legacy of fine Cabernets from our Estate vines.

"A simple, solid, Napa Cabernet, this wine's red plum fruit feels round and complete. The tannins are perfumed with baking spices and a peppery grip giving a warmth to the finish, ready for roast leg of lamb."
