Amazing and archetypical Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine epitomizes the classic black fruit characters, bold complex flavors and intense structure one would expect from a great vintage from Napa. Blackberry, black currant, graphite, dark chocolate, tobacco, and spice meld together in a complex and intricate flavor profile enveloped in thick coating tannis that are exceptional and lasting.

Growing Conditions

February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near-ideal conditions for winemakers to allow their fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.
