Description

With intense fruit and well-integrated oak, this wine is a powerful expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It is distinguished by its dark profile and deep, decadent flavors, representative of the cool vintage. Aromas of black plums and cherry pie are elevated by layers of spice cake and caramelized vanilla. Boysenberry jam introduces the palate, supported by black fruit and swirls of rich cocoa. Barrel influence is evident in the complex structure and toasty spices that accompany the dark chocolaty tannins into a long, lively finish.

This wine makes a fine accompaniment to braised short ribs or pasta carbonara.

 

Wine Advocate: 88 Points

The Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is blended of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Petite Sirah, 1% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc, aged for 16 months in French, American and Hungarian oak (30% new). Deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals crushed red and black currants, Black Forest cake and menthol notes with hints of cloves, black pepper and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy black fruits and a plush frame, finishing with a minty lift. 12,200 cases produced.
