Winemaker's Notes:

Note: Please limit 6 bottles per order! TASTING NOTES (2/08): �Impeccably well balanced as well as pure, it offers elegant, sweet black currant and dark blackberry fruit tightly interwoven with cedar, vanillin, and a hint of melted licorice notes. This beautifully proportioned Cabernet is very finely tuned. Today, this wine is wound up tight, reminiscent of a elegant Bordeaux (actually reminds me of the first time I tasted Lynch Bages 2000) but a generous supply of delicious Napa fruit that will evolve with proper cellaring (we recommend a minimum 3 � 5 years). Good news for patient, long term collectors is this gem should drink well for 10-15 years, peaking around 2013 in our estimate. � Hal Oates, Porthos.com INSIDER SCOOP: This Cabernet is hand crafted by Napa�s hottest dynamic duo: Renowned Screaming Eagle ($1,500/bottle) winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett and famed viticulturist Jim Barbour, the talent behind highly rated �Cult� Cabernets including Grace Family ($225/bottle), Hundred Acre ($259/bottle), La Sirena ($189/bottle), and Revana Family Vineyards ($199/bottle).
