A really wonderful Cabernet, clearly grown well and well made. It has that plush, rich feeling you want in a Cabernet Sauvignon, with deliciously ripe blackberry, black currant, cassis and dark chocolate flavors. Terrific now, and should age for 4–6 years, if not longer.
This is the kind of Chardonnay that divides wine lovers into enemy camps. Old World purists will criticize the candied richness. New World fans will love the toasted marshmallow, caramel corn and buttered toast flavors that rest on a solid foundation of pineapple and green apple fruit.
A pretty, polished and tasty wine for drinking now. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s dry, full-bodied and smooth, with blackberry, currant, dark chocolate, green olive and oak flavors.
Good price for a Napa Valley Cabernet this distinguished. It’s rich and satisfying in blackberry, black currant and blueberry fruit, with a lovely coat of smoky oak. Shows lots of complexity, and the finish is dry and spicy. Could go the distance, but just to be safe, drink over the next six years.
Nice, classic black currant and cedar flavors in this dry young wine, with some firm minerality. The tannin structure is evident in the form of a tough astringency. Give it 6–8 years in the cellar.
A fine Cabernet, this is dry, full bodied and softly tannic, with real Napa elegance. Feels smooth in the mouth, offering concentrated blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and sweet oak flavors. Drink over the next six years.
This is a field blend that includes about 5% Petite Sirah. Classic flavors of black cherry, pie cherry and blackberry, balanced acids, soft tannins, and some peppery spice. There’s a whiff of earth or barnyard, just enough to add interest.
