From the exceptional 2007 vintage, with production down 15% from 2006, we have crafted a densely woven, deeply fruited Reserve Cabernet rooted in Pritchard Hill, Calistoga, Rutherford and Oak Knoll hillside vineyards. Broad-shouldered and muscular, this blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc is packed with black currants and berries, dark chocolate, espresso, and sweet cedar and oak spice. Thickly textured on a massive scale with saturated fruit and sinewy tannins, this wine will stand tall for many years. 1,700 cases produced.
"Firm, rich, intense and concentrated, with a layered mix of blackberry, currant, black licorice, spice, cedary oak and mineral notes. Full-bodied, well-structured and focused, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2020."
