Started in 1981 by Ron and Diane Disney Miller. Three generations, almost 40 years later, Miller Family continues to source grapes entirely from their family-owned estate Napa vineyards. 100% Cab, elegant dark fruit aromas with herb and oak notes. Blackberry, currants and raspberry, pepper spice and leather. Fine tannins, lingering fresh finish ending withoak and mineral tang. Very nice.

Dusty, Bordeaux style, can almost smell the vibrant acid on the nose. On the palate, calm tannins, spicy on sides of the tongue, acidity more part of the whole rather than a singular note, quite even-keeled and level-headed, concentrated. 100 percent Cab which is rare. Stags Leap single vineyard. Shockingly I liked the Geo better....it's possible this could mature into a better wine however.

Completely exceeded my expectations. More minerality and spice than fruit. Paired well with smoked ribs. I'm a believer!

Opaque purple color with alluring cherry, black raspberry, violet, leather and vanilla aromas. On the palate it's medium-bodied, and persistent with mouth-watering acidity, and polished tannins that lend to its supple and elegant character. It shows focused black currant, blackberry, red plum and vanilla flavors with a hint of cola. Long finish.

Better on the second day, at first it seemed a little meh but this Cab is hitting the spot after 24hrs and a little air.

16.5/20 (91/100) Развитой букет ароматов в котором доминируют чёрные ягоды (скорее черника, чем чёрная смородина), кофе, сухая древесина. Тельное с высокой кислотностью. Танины довольно интенсивные, приятной текстуры. Ягодное-шоколадное во вкусе. #dfwe2019

Bought 4 at shoppers corner. Had the 2009 vintage in 2018 for my birthday. It was fantastic. I hope this is as good. Give one to Bill Bottenberg for his 75th birthday

I’ve loved solo in the past but the 2013 vintage is a bit flat on the finish. Flavour great...
