The Dead Cat cuvee... oh, I'm sorry, I mean the 2001 Ode To Picasso (their homage to a deceased pet) is a blend of 40% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Merlot (who thinks up these blends?). No European producer would dare mix all this stuff together because of... tradition... but these disrespectful adult hippies got it right. It's all about creativity, singularity, and producing awesome wines... like this one. Incredible aromas of creosote, blackberries, creme de cassis, acacia flowers, and underbrush soar from the glass. Superb texture, great purity (a characteristics of all B and H wines), and terrific length characterize this wine. It will be impossible to resist over the next 10-15 years. Go for it! Drink 2003-2018.

The 2000 Ode to Picasso (a 375-case blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 20% Syrah) is a blockbuster, exotic, hedonistic turn-on offering glorious levels of fruit, glycerin, and explosive aromatics. It should be delicious young yet last for 10-15 years.

Bright ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of crushed blackberry, violet, tar and spices. Juicy, intense and bright, with black fruit, tar and bitter chocolate flavors nicely framed by fresh acids. At once chewy and juicy, with good density and cut. Cool suggestion of medicinal licorice. Finishes with torrefaction notes of tar and oak char.

(A blend of 40% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot) Deep, bright ruby. Super ripe but vibrant nose combines black fruits, dark chocolate, violet and meat. Distinctly liqueur-like in the mouth, with super concentrated flavors of kirsch, violet pastille, menthol and chocolate. A powerful, compellingly rich wine that's sweet but dry in the way of so many Napa Valley bottlings from very ripe years. Finishes with big, broad tannins and excellent length.

The lavishly endowed 1999 Ode to Picasso (a 368-case blend of 32% Syrah, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 12% Cabernet Franc, aged in 30% new French oak, and named after a deceased pet cat) offers a blue/purple color as well as a full-bodied, opulent personality. Aromas and flavors of blackberries and blueberries are accompanied by huge levels of glycerin, extraordinary purity and palate presence, sweet tannin, and unobtrusive acidity. Enjoy it over the next 8-10 years.

A 265-case blend of 54% Merlot, 25% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah, the impressively concentrated 2004 B and H Ode to Picasso offers hints of charcoal, graphite, black raspberries, blueberries, and cherries. The complex aromatics are followed by a wine with terrific fruit, a lush, opulent attack and mid-palate, and a heady finish. This beautiful red should drink nicely for 5-7 years.
