Winemaker's Notes:

Classic Napa Cabernet from one of our favorite "old school" wineries in California. This one will age beautifully, with cassis, black fruit, herbs, tea/tobacco, white pepper and vanilla that characterizes the nose of this mountain Cabernet. Full and smooth, elegantly structured and well-balanced. Abundant toasty oak and berry flavors fill the mouth, finishing long and soft.

"Impressive for its rich, tight, deeply concentrated core of spice and anise-laced currant and blackberry flavors. Sharply focused, intense and concentrated, its mouthfilling fruit flavors are long and complex on the finish, with well-integrated tannins. A great wine for the cellar. Best from 2004 through 2014."
