Winemaker's Notes:

1997 has turned out to be an outstanding year for dark, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Napa Valley. This wine is richly structured and loaded with complex flavor reminiscent of dark fruits like blackberries and black cherries. In the mouth it has a rich, round, opulent feel. The dark fruit character lingers along with subtle oak notes in the long, supple finish.
