This is a delicious Rosé from Napa Valley. Smooth and elegant with such a pretty color. Interesting and engaging.
Nicely balanced with a great mouthfeel. Rich with nice complexity.
Fruit forward and tastes like a very light red. Interesting stuff.
A nice sipping wine. Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. Paired beautifully with the prosciutto.

Full-bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, light vanilla, earth, light herbs, spices, coffee, light cola, graphite and black pepper.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. A very nice sipping wine.
Still young, but already drinking very elegantly, with nice complexity and mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. I gave it two and a half hours, but that might not have been enough. Nevertheless, it is delicious now and good by itself or with food. As it opens up, it shows a gorgeous nose.
Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
I had the 2014 last year, and it is showing nice consistency. A good quality wine with good potential to become even better.
This Single Vineyard from this great vintage is rich, elegant, soft and spicy. Just Delicious.

Last ‘12 in my cellar! Blend of 97% Cab Sauv, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cab Franc, aged for 20 months in French oak (55% new), deep Ruby with aromas of dark dried fruit with notes of floral and spices. An ideal growing season in 2012, the palate shows dense ripe dark berry fruit with a touch of leather, cinnamon, espresso, mushroom and cacao. Well integrated with fine structured tannins, the wine is complex yet enjoyable, aged well still has room to run. Long finish ending with ripe fruits and oak. — 2 days ago
