Winemaker Notes

Deep red-black. Cassis liqueur with touches of fuchsia on the rim. Beautiful interplay between rocks and ripe fruit and nuances of plum tart, macerated cherries, dark chocolate, lavender, cedar and fresh herbs. Silky entrance evolving to a dense structure with blueberries, black cherries and boysenberries lingering on white flowers and chocolate candy.

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon ERA is very deep purple-black colored and sashays out of the glass with gorgeous cassis, black cherries, wild blueberries and kirsch scents plus hints of cedar chest, tobacco, black olives, violets and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited with firm yet plush tannins and seamless freshness, it finishes with epic length and depth.

Jeb Dunnuck
Only the second time this cuvée has been 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 ERA is a blend of all the single vineyards and what Jean considered the best wine. I can’t argue with him. This wine offers awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, crushed rocks, hints of mountain scrub brush, and lead pencil shavings. Deep and full-bodied, it has sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. There are 900 cases of this brilliant wine which will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for two decades.

Wine Enthusiast

This blends grapes from several marquee vineyards across the valley, all varietal. Bold and bursting in dried herb, graphite and dust, it dazzles in supple blue fruit, cassis and black licorice, its core of full-bodied richness entirely integrated, seamless and graceful on the lengthy, spicy palate.

James Suckling
A juicy and rich red with dark-berry and chocolate character. Full and savory with loads of spices, dark berries and hazelnuts. Chewy and tight right now. Needs three or four years to soften.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
