Blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot & Petit Verdot, very dark Ruby with aromas of complex berries and sweet earthy spices. On the palate ripe blackberry and black cherry flavors with ample minerality and soft smooth tannins. Long finish, well balanced with moderate acidity, ending with cacao, oak and cinnamon character. Less than 2000 cases made if you are lucky to find one, aged well. — 20 days ago
Dark purple with a near black core. Inviting nose and full-bodied palate of blueberry compote, black currant, and blackberry cobbler all in a balsam bowl. Medium tannins and sneaky medium acidity from entry to lengthy dark finish. Now this is a nice example of what California does best. Smooth enough for a sipper but with enough structure to accompany light to medium cuts of beef. Put it up against any modern “cult” blend and it will show beautifully. Drink now through 2023. — 18 days ago
This 12 year old Napa Cabernet is drinking so very nicely now.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, cola, tobacco, coffee and peppercorn.
Full bodied rich, extracted and delicious.
Medium acidity with a long finish and soft tannins.
Dry on the palate and very fruity.
This Single Vineyard could age for another 10 years, but I really enjoyed it at this stage.

Continuing the theme of Napa cabs with some real age - out of a 375ml. Rattlesnake is always a show stopper with that unique cotton candy nose. At 16 years old it is just spectacular with leather, pencil lead and blueberry compote finishing with a little hoisin. — a day ago
