Winemaker's Notes

A complex series of aromas unfold in the glass, from warm berries and concentrated cassis, to chocolate fudge, violets, and barrel spices. The deep, dark fruit and chocolate flavors are surrounded by a velvety texture and fine tannins that linger on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Albeit a very young wine, this complex and com-pelling take on Napa Valley Cabernet already conveys the sense of layering and fruity depth that marks the best of the breed. Its deep and articulate themes of cassis and ripe cherries are nicely enriched by attractive elements of vanilla-bean sweetness, toast and deft forest-floor spice, and, while fairly tannic, it is always supple and polished in feel. It is never a bold or boisterous wine, but it can be counted on to gain in both beauty and grace for five to ten years."
92 Points

"A very good but not great Cask 23, showing plenty of decadence and flair but not perhaps that extra edge of complexity. It’s forward now in sweet new oak and flashy, jammy blackberries, cherries and raspberries. The tannins are quite an achievement, rich, vibrant and supple. Made from 100% Cabernet, it’s full-bodied and dense, with a chocolaty finish. Could gain in the bottle beyond 2012 to about 2018."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
