This estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon evolves in the glass with alluring aromas of black cherry, plum, and chocolate covered strawberries. Backed by hints of warm and toasty oak, vanilla, and walnut, this wine's palate is soft and inviting as the true complexity of the wine is revealed. It is medium bodied and well-structured, with balanced tannins and a touch of refreshing acidity. Flavors of mocha and chocolate covered cherries are apparent throughout the long and smooth finish. This wine may be enjoyed now but will age gracefully over time.
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, 2% Merlot
"Herbs, tobacco, cedar, iron, smoke and incense emerge from the glass in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. A gorgeous, savory and totally expressive wine, the 2011 impresses for its balance and pedigree. This is without question one of the most beautiful wines of the year. The profile is decidedly European-influenced in its aromatics and structure, but the fruit is pure Napa Valley. There are only a handful of values left in first-class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon; this is one of them."
