Our 2011 Cru Cabernet offers deeply saturated ruby and purple hues that promise to please the eye as greatly as the palate. Expressive aromas of blackberry, mountain sage, rose petal, and sandalwood emerge from the glass after gentle swirling. Lush, clean and precise, the palate abounds with expansive layers of bergamot, brambly black fruits, a touch of red cassis and dusty cocoa powder. Stunning in mouth-feel, this richly textured wine delivers velvety, palate-coating richness that carries through an endless finish. Sound acidity and fine grain tannins allow for graceful aging without delaying satisfaction and early enjoyment of this polished, supple wine. Enjoyable now or over the next 10 to 12 years. - WineryBlend:82% Cabernet Sauvignon6% Petite Verdot5% Merlot4% Cabernet Franc3% MalbecBarrel Age: 18 months in French Oak, 50% newCooperage: Taransaud, "O", Demptos, Saury, ErmitageAlcohol: 14.8%

Produced under the watchful eye of Keith Emerson, the Vineyard 29 Cru Cabernet has layered boysenberry and wild strawberry aromas with coffee bean and mocha notes. On the palate the wine is dense and complex with firm tannins and a luscious finish.

"Its all about making the wine in the vineyard" is how Keith Emerson, Director of Winemaking at Vineyard 29, describes the philosophy behind making our Cru Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything from site selection, crop yield, and picking decisions are made with the final blend in mind. This is deliberate, detail-oriented winemaking resulting in an elegantly composed wine that depicts the best of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.Our 2010 Cru Cabernet is a deep purple tinged wine of extraordinary depth and complexity. Primary aromas of dried red currant, ripe blackberries and milk chocolate give way to layers of fresh tobacco leaf, dried lavender and cedar. A generous palate offers roasted coffee, mocha, brambly black fruits and a touch of black pepper that slip seamlessly into a long supple finish. Stunning in mouthfeel, this profoundly textured wine will leave you wanting more.Well-integrated and balanced tannins give firm structure to this wine at release, yet are powerful eno...

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru is a fleshy wine layered with dark red fruit, flowers, spices, new leather and mocha. This dark Cabernet Sauvignon is graced with considerable depth and tons of class. A gorgeous, delineated finish adds finesse to this rich, textured Cabernet. The 2009 Cru is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec, mostly from vineyards in St. Helena. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2019.

Good medium ruby. Dark, brooding aromas of cassis, licorice, graphite and chocolate, lifted by a floral topnote. Lush, sweet and seamless, with excellent lift to its ripe black fruit and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the very long, juicy back end, which features wonderful suave soft tannins for this site. I underrated this wine from barrel last year. This superb wine is harmonious already but should really be cellared for at least a few years.
