Winemaker Notes

A very dry year combined with warm temperatures to produce a light crop of small grape clusters for the Cabernet Sauvignon, yielding a wine with rich, complex flavors and firm tannins. Wines from the Chabot, St. Helena Home and Bancroft vineyards made up the final blend for the Private Reserve; a small percentage of exceptional quality wine from the Sorensen Vineyard in St. Helena was added for its fruity, spicy flavors and soft tannins. The blend includes 7 percent Cabernet Franc. The wine is high in intensity and complexity of Cabernet flavors. It is a chewy, big wine with lots of tannin and sweet, dark fruits, tarry tobacco and chocolate. One of Ed Sbragia's favorites.2007 Tasting Note:
This is Ed's favorite vintage. It's such a big, classic California vintage. Still tannic, everything's intact. Dark black fruit core with lots of spice, cedar, white pepper, menthol and rich cocoa.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1987 Reserve is a worthy competitor to the terrific 1986. The 1987's dark ruby/garnet color is followed by a super bouquet. There are huge aromas of chocolate, spicy new oak, herbs, cassis and tobacco in this beautifully scented wine. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, voluptuous, spicy, and crammed with fruit, glycerin, and enough tannin to support 15-16 years of cellaring. Like the 1986, the tannins are soft, and, fortunately, the acids are not shrill enough to prevent immediate drinkability. This is a skillfully made, complex Cabernet Sauvignon that will not linger long on retailers' shelves.
