Bouquet: Black ripe fruits, concentrated leather, chocolate and graphite are all in a perfect balance.
Taste: Dense and warm, firm tannins with a sweet after-taste, a long persistence of chocolate and dry fruit.
This wine is an excellent accompaniment to leg of lamb with spicy sauces, blue cheese, Gruyere and Emmentaler.
Taut for now, with a concentrated core of red currant, aged tobacco, cedar and shaved vanilla waiting to emerge from behind the sinewy tannins. Long, minerally finish. Let this settle in. Best from 2009 through 2012. 1,700 cases made.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
