This wine defines the modern style of ripe, soft, luscious Napa Cabernet, yet brings a firm structure that suggests the cellar.
The 2009 growing season was mild mannered in comparison to past recent years with little to no frost. Rainfall was well timed yet lighter than normal. Bloom and fruit set occurred in a relatively condensed time period which contributed to even ripeness and ample supply. Harvest was late and generous, yielding superb quality fruit in ideal condition.
