%100 Cabernet. All estate fruit. Really opened up after an hour. Young but already gorgeous. Would love to revisit in a few years.

Reminds me of a cherry liquor chocolate sachertorte!! Really delicious. Young but already beautifully developed.

Awesome cab. Dark, mysterious, young but not too harsh on the pallet.

Tried another bottle. Deep red with purple highlights and aromas of dark black fruits, herbs and smoky oak, very complex. Aged for 20 months in French oak (50% new) and hand selected from the best barrels in the cellar. On the palate blackberry and blueberry flavors with cedar, leather and tobacco. Full-body, well integrated tannins on a long lingering finish. An exceptional wine that will age and last for a long time.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the little winery that put Napa Cabs on the map 40 years ago and created its own district. A great blackberry color and note. I like the chocolate on the finish mixed with the black pepper. Another great selection for The Capital Grille Generous Pour event.

Dark chocolate & ripe red fruit in the nose. Strong robust tannins indicative of a young full bodied Cabernet. Cranberry, blackberry, cassis. Black pepper, cedar & cocoa

Let it breathe for an hour. Opened up nicely, very dry full bodied Cabernet. Went excellent with grilled T-bone steak and olive oil lemon horseradish potatoes. Great finish

Starting off the wine was deep red with purple highlights and aromas of dark Berry fruits, some herbs and a touch of smoke, very complex. Aged for 20 months in French oak (50% new) and hand selected from the best barrels in the cellar. On the palate blackberry and blueberry flavors with undertones of cranberry, cedar and tobacco. This full-body wine had well integrated tannins on a long lingering finish. An exceptional wine that will age and last for a long time.
