Presents a harmonious bouquet that overflows with sweet plum, blueberry jam, and dark black cherry, intertwined with touches of mocha, allspice, sweet vanilla, and sandalwood.
The palate is exquisitely plush, filling the mouth with flavors of ripe raspberry, blackberry pie, and juicy plum, supported by a framework of smooth tannins and touches of toasted oak, dark baking cocoa, and spun caramel that remain through the long, elegant finish.
For this special bottling, only the best blocks of the most outstanding fruit are selected from our 160 acres of estate vineyards across Napa Valley. The appellation composition of this wine varies from one vintage to the next, depending upon the performance and character of each vineyard.
The fruit for this wine was harvested at an optimal level of ripeness in mid-October. The berries were hand harvested at night and carefully sorted and destemmed to tank, where fermentation took place.
A stunning, deep ruby wine.
With its captivating complexity and stellar balance, this Cabernet is the star of any meal it accompanies. A substantial yet simple dish such as a dry-aged New York strip steak with Parmesan potato gratin and sautéed long beans would pair fabulously with this wine. For a memorable cheese course, try it with extra-aged Beemster, a nutty cow’s-milk cheese from Holland.
