Gifted a taste by a friend. Trying this immediately after the Chateau Montelena shows the differences between Calistoga and Oak Knoll, with this being more vegetal and "harder" on the nose. There's less sweetness and more of a ripe character, and that transfers onto the palate as well, with a juicy bell pepper and underripe raspberry quality showing forth. It's a beautiful wine made in a masculine cabernet style.

Bottle 1 of 8 in our 2012 Napa cab tasting at Chain Bridge Cellars. One of my favorites of the night. Lean, fresh, angular. 14.1% alcohol.

This 2012 isn't showing as well as the 2011 at this stage. Tannins are still fierce. Needs time in bottle

Hints of cherry and chocolate. So smooth with a Cajun filet mignon.
