2014 vintage. Blend of valley floor (mostly Coombsville with Rutherford) and sourced fruit from mountain AVAs (Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder). Bold and powerful with juicy black fruits, slightly austere tannic structure and good length. Should age very well. Very good value for Napa standards.

Noticeably lighter in color for napa cab. Bright bright aromatics of red fruit that lead to soft tannins on the palate. Overall, a rather restrained style of napa cab

Really dug this. Complex, notes of fruit but not overwhelming, full bodied. Want to explore this winery.

Found this to be a great gift - value. A little hint of berries, smoke but a great taste!

Great nose and front. Medium plus body that shows well enough. Excited I’m starting to understand/see what it means for a wine to be “young”. This one qualifies. Long enough but would of probably been better/more open after a few hours of decanting. Don’t think the restaurant or my wife would’ve appreciated me insisting on that. Still, was a treat of a CA cab blend.
