Wine Review: This slightly opaque dark ruby colored Cabernet opens with a fragrant red currant and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and quite savory. The flavor profile is black cherry with notes of mild vanilla oak. I also detected hints of red raspberry and black currant which added to its complexity. The finish was dry and its moderate tannins are friendly and gentle. This Cab is showing well now and should be enjoyed in the near term with a seasoned pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The product of a near-perfect growing season, this is one of the most complex and mouthfilling renditions of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to date. Blended to showcase the rich diversity of great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it brings together grapes from some of the valley’s most acclaimed winegrowing appellations and includes a mix of mountain and valley floor fruit. Aromas of ripe currant, spearmint, marzipan and tobacco lead to intense flavors of blackberry and black cherry, all supported by a subtle framework of French oak, which adds nuance, depth and dimension to the finish.
