The nose is perfumed with luxuriant aromas of red currant, boysenberry, cedar box, and Herbes
de Provence.


The intensely layered palate excites with flavors of cassis, graphite, blueberries, and
sage, woven seamlessly together with savory, velvety tannins. The finish is long and pure, a perfect
harmony of richness and elegance.

Growing Conditions

2014 was the third straight outstanding growing season in a row, following the
excellent 2012 and 2013 vintages. Dry winter and spring conditions limited canopy vigor, and a
warm growing season with a lack of extreme heat spikes resulted in prolonged, even ripening
through harvest. The resulting wines possess great site specificity, depth and quality.

This stately cabernet sauvignon displays great depth and complexity from diverse terroirs, including
fruit from our Nathan Coombs Estate and other pedigreed Napa Valley vineyards.
