“Medium-dark to dark ruby; initially subdued, deep, brooding, cassis and black fruit aroma with hints of dark chocolate and sandalwood; full body; rich, textured, toasty, dark berry fruit flavors; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Developed with airing in the glass, though still needs several more years of bottle aging to help resolve the tannin.”
Highly recommended

“At first glance, this red is striking – it is a glass-staining, opaque purple/black with violet glints. The nose delivers on the color’s promise, with rich, pleasing scents of roast coffee, black plum, and black cherry. In the mouth, it is lovely and lush, the flavors echoing the nose. The tannins are surprisingly soft for such a big wine, making this accessible now, although it will also reward short to mid-term cellaring. Excellent value for Napa Valley Cabernet. Try with richer red meats, like roasted rack of lamb.”

"These are impressive Cabernet-based wines. The 2011 Napa bottling is supple and rich; a fine 2011. It is full bodied, balanced, and long and mildly tannic on the finish, and tastes of cassis, plum jam, blackberry, black licorice, and spicy oak. Can be aged further. 20% Petit Verdot. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. 1,501 cases. 14.2%"
Excellent quality for its type and style. Among the very best of its type for its price. Highly Recommended.

"Impressive Cabernet at the price. It is fleshy and medium rich; a full bodied, balanced Cabernet with a medium long finish, tasting of cassis, plum, toast, cherry, and cedar. Mildly tannic; warrants modest aging. 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 1% Syrah. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. 17,500 cases. 14.9%"
Excellent quality for its type and style. Among the very best of its type for its price. Highly Recommended.

“Medium-dark ruby; attractive, fragrant, moderately intense, cassis and blackberry fruit aroma; medium-full to full body; fairly rich, textured, dark currant and black fruit flavors with some depth and richness; medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Easy to enjoy now and over the near term. Good value and good availability.”
