Wow! So I stand by my assessment of Napa '14. Beautiful blue fruit that is so smooth and mouth coating. I dare you to drink just one.

2011 Vintage- Restrained fruit with a little dust on the back end. Very nice wine with ample acidity. Enjoy now or a few years from now

Definitely one of the best Napa Cabs of the vintage. Dark cassis and blackberry combine with sweet herbs and a hint of oak spice. Long, savory finish ensures this will only get better over the next 15+ years.

A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to put the glass down. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct 2015)

Thanks @Cathy Corison for this fantastic, balanced, dark fruited Napa Cabernet! At 13.6%, the 2nd glass was better than the first. I loved this with burgers!

Fresh off the bottling line. Slated for fall release. 25th (!?) anniversary label. Very challenging vintage, one of the best wines I've ever made. So looking forward to the next quarter-century.

The recipe for greatness in this bottle, equal parts:
• Rutherford's stony, alluvial soil
• Cathy's sage-like light touch in the winery
• The patience for tannin, fruit & mineral characters to become perfectly in sync dance partners
• The generosity of friends to share
• Outstanding drinking companions

This is fantastic. Ripe but balanced, tannic but that works. I would call this classically styled, Old Napa. Just gorgeous.
