The latest entrant into the Napa Cabernet sweepstakes succeeds with this flashy wine. Made from grapes grown in the warm Vaca Hills east of the Silverado Trail, this wine impresses immediately with aromatics of black currants, mocha and lightly toasted French oak. In the mouth, it’s pure Cabernet pleasure, with soft, compelling tannins and fine acidity. It’s a dramatic wine that should develop well over the next 10 years, if not longer. This is a winery to watch.
Bright medium ruby. Very dark aromas of blackberry, purple flowers and minerals, plus a whiff of tobacco; hints at almost syrupy ripeness but shows good lift too. A seamless, fine-grained fruit bomb in the mouth, but with a restrained sweetness to its dark berry flavors. Finishes with substantial but very fine tannins. Winemaker Thomas Brown wants to see a bit more tannic grip, but the quality of the fruit here suggests that this will be a project to watch as the vines mature.
