So beautiful and clear in its purpose, titillating on the nose and fulfilling its promises beyond. Balanced and velvety dark red fruit, hints of black tea and cassis but all in a more Old than New World Gestalt. Lots of secondary stuff emerging you just want to sip it slowly. If anybody wonders how well these age, track one down, it’s so worth it. Kudos @Cathy Corison for making this distinctive and enduring bottle!

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.

Elegant and powerful; still youthful. Endlessly enjoyable and engaging on so many levels.

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.
