Winemaker's Notes

Densely packed in the glass - the nose slowly gives dark berries, graphite, damp earth, and a mineral lift. The deep structure reveals lush blueberries, blackberries, mocha, and rich Cabernet fruit. There is great build on the finish as the density of flavor and aroma continue to broaden.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and robust, intense and concentrated, with a full-bodied mix of black cherry, plum, dusty berry, mineral, anise and sage. This is focused, with a long, layered finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. 550 cases made."
92 Points

"The proprietary blend (although in this case it's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from specific sites from the home vineyard) is the 2006 Ame, which means "soul" in French. A beautiful black currant nose with hints of spring flowers, licorice, and spice are present in this full-bodied wine with beautiful fruit, sweet tannin, and a long, heady finish. This is very serious Cabernet that should drink well for 15-20 or more years. "

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,...
