    A big, luxurious, structured, reserve level Cab that totally over delivers at this heavily discounted price point. Powerful dark fruit, blackcurrant, cassis, bramble, scorched earth, exotic oak spices. Juicy and succulent enough to drink now, but also showing plenty of structure to last 8-10 years in the cellar...maybe more. Made from a top barrel selection of Grand Napa's lots from across the valley with fruit coming from: Rutherford, Diamond Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain, Oakville and Atlas Peak. The fruit is fermented in tiny one ton, open top tanks and punch-downs are done by hand; this is boutique, labor of love wine making as employed by Napa's top cult Cab producers. It then rests for two years in super high-end Seguin Moreau French oak. No expense spared here; this is up there with the crème de la crème of the region and at a fraction of the typical asking price.

    Another screaming deal for Napa Cabernet, but a totally different take from the Grand Napa Rutherford. Still big and rich, while maintaining balance and poise, the flavor here is still loaded with beautiful fruit expression, but these are offset with earthy components. Charcoal, graphite offset the fruit in ways that are almost reminiscent Leoville-Barton. A solid, beautifully structured Cabernet with an exceptional finish. This is an absolute no-brainer.
