77% CS and 28% CF - it was opened and. Should been decanted - it was tight but after it got in the glass it opened up nicely - this has 10-20 years left - inky and bold and full of deep rich black fruits

Magnum; well rounded, beautiful nose, with hints of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather.

Decanted for 2 hours, and it opened beautifully, Cabernet Sauvignon 55%, Cabernet Franc45%, earthy, minerals, leather, big and bold, this will continue to age over the next couple of years.

2002 out of magnum. Wine of the night. Wouldn't have guessed it was 13 years old.

2002, this wine has reached the age of full potential. Full bodied notes, dark tannins and dark purple in color. A true gem.

2010 Viader Red - 72% Cab, 28% Franc
The Cab Franc adds a nice touch to the traditional napa valley cab profile.
