Dark and sweet on the nose with plenty of chocolate and toasty oak notes over a base of herb-brushed, lightly roasted blackberry fruit. Light and dry on entry, this is rather poised in the mouth and not at all in the common soft style of Napa Valley today. The flavors are well anchored by good acidity and dry, earthy tannins, showing a suggestion of herb, a touch of tobacco and light cedar accents to the red and black currant fruit. The back end shows a little oak, nothing too obvious, and it drives the moderately long finish, which picks up a touch more herb and fruit character. This is relatively complex and elegant in a masculine way. 88pts

Good. But not as good as past years. I noticed that the price on this dropped by $10 a bottle. Larger amounts were created for this years vintage. Decent but not as good as the 2007! Cheers!

This wine is a little too young to be fairly judged, however this is a fantastic Napa Cab at a great price. The bouquet of this wine shows dark cherries and plums, as well as hints of sweet caramel. On the palate this wine is DARK, black currants over dark fruit, these flavors lead into intense, smokey coffee and chocolate in the middle. The finish is extremely intense with heavy mouth-coating tannins that will be with you for the next couple days.

Winemaker Notes - Dried dark fruit and smoky oak nuances come through on the mid-palate, revealing additional layers of depth. The finish is rich with big, mouth-filling tannins and a firm core of high quality French oak.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our B Side Cabernet Sauvignon shows excellent fruit and balance without sacrificing tannin, backbone, and potential for aging. A blend of two different Napa benchland vineyards, this dark, garnet red Cabernet opens with wild strawberry and boysenberry aromas, a touch of caramelized oak, bittersweet chocolate, and hints of charcoal from the rich and multifaceted Napa Valley soils. It is textbook Napa Cab on the palate, with an essence of black current and dark red raspberry contrasting with firm structure and dusty tannins on the finish. Aged for over two years on French oak, this wine has both the fruit necessary for immediate enjoyment, and the balance and depth to improve with age.
