Reliably intense, classic cabernet sauvignon flavor, but wish I’d given this more years to blend (or maybe decanted longer; we popped it and gobbled it up)

Charter vintage from Napa's first black winemaker. Perfectly mellowed, while still rich, ripe fruit flavor

Dark red, cherry & plum. Excellent, no excuse needed to drink, fresh and mellow could age another 5 years but why wait... drink now and again in five.

Downed it right after the 2001 and it just wasn't a fair comparison. But kept coming alive in the glass. Excited about my other bottle stashed away.

Amazingly fruity and easy to drink. It's the perfect wine for any occasion!

Brown Estate's first vintage. An auspicious start for 2017.

Purest form of the Napa Cab ... Huge ripe fruit, 14.5 alcohol, a well balanced party in your mouth. Side note ... A lovely family I had the privilege of spending the afternoon a couple of years ago ... a must visit when in the valley.
