This 2,400+ case blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot was aged 21 months in French oak (two-thirds new). The winery believes this cuvee’s finest drinking days were between 2004 and 2012, although I believe that is conservative, as this wine is still in late adolescence in terms of its evolutionary track. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with copious aromas of blueberries, raspberries, spring flowers and earth. Dense, rich and full-bodied, with superb intensity, purity, texture and length, this beauty is close to full maturity, but is capable of lasting another 10-15 years in a cool cellar. (RP)
Here's a textbook Napa Cab. It's concentrated in black currant flavors, with the best tannic structure money can buy. Soft and elegant in the mouth, with a long, elegant finish. Could use some individuality, though, as it's firmly in the international style.
Graceful and complex, with an enticing loamy earth and mineral edge to the dried berry flavors. Builds depth and complexity, as cedar notes and firm tannins chime in on the finish.—2002 California Cabernet blind retrospective (May 2012). (JL, Web-2012)
