Winemaker's Notes

#63 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Critical Acclaim

"Robust and potent, offering ripe, dense blackberry, licorice, lead pencil, cedar and roasted herb flavors that are full-bodied and concentrated, all the while holding onto a tight focus and ending with a long, chewy, persistent finish. Best from 2013 through 2023. 8,783 cases made."
94 Points

"The winery's top bottling, and this vintage recalls the tremendous 2000. Tastes important right off the bat, althought it's obviously young and unintegrated. New, smokky oak dominates, with themes of ripe, concentrated blackberries and cassis, but the tannins are hard as nails. Wants and needs time. Best well after 2013, and should develop for years beyond. Cellar Selection."
94 Points

"The beautiful 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is more complex with a more opulent texture, full-bodied richness and plenty of sweet black currant fruit intermixed with cedar, spice box and Asian spice. Drink this opulent 2007 now and over the next 15+ years."
93 Points

"Here is the kind of wine about which controversy has suddenly sprung, for while it is high in oak and very ripe, it is also a deep and wonderfully well-structured wine. It will have spears hurled its way by those who drink nothing other than high-acid, low-alcohol wines, but, make no mistake, this noteworthy bottling has the complexity, the fruity substance and the layered interest that makes fine Cabernet famously prized, and it is balanced to grow for another decade or more."

Learn About Napa Valley

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...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. 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,...
