Winemaker's Notes

First impressions of the aromas from this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon show lovely, perfumed essence of raspberries, roses and a touch of lilac, with darker cherry tones adding depth and a sense of mature-fruit. The sweet fruit character is remarkably focused and intense, reflecting its steep hillside origins. On the palate, the wine offers an elegant, full-bodied, soft, silky entry, with dark, warm berry fruit character. The mid-palate impression adds a subtle note of tobacco leaf and toasty vanilla, with just a hint of anise/spice adding complexity as the fresh berry notes linger. The finish is equally rich, exhibiting layers of complexity and a dense, mouth-coating texture. The overall density and concentration of the palate impression results from the very rocky vineyard source of this dark, rich cabernet.

Critical Acclaim

"Exhibits complex layers of ripe cherry, blackberry and currant, with touches of mocha-laced oak that are woven together nicely. Full-bodied, firming midpalate and ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2020. 480 cases made."

"Like any new winery, this is a work in progress, and the 2008 shows slightly better than the 2007 - but don't dismiss the 2007. Loads of black cherry, black currant, licorice, and spring flowers are present in this mid-weight, elegant, stylish wine, which offers up sweet tannin in a nice framework, with a well-balanced mouthfeel. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years. "

"Good saturated, bright ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry, blueberry, mint and minerals. Silky on entry, then tighter but still pliant in the middle, with the black and blue fruit and mint flavors carrying through. Shows some Stags Leap dark chocolate character but this is distinctly more rocky and minerally than earthy in character. I like this firmly tannic cabernet's restrained sweetness, but it calls for at least a few years of cellaring.
Rating: 91(+?)"

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,...
