The Napa Valley wines include up to 15% Napa Valley floor fruit with the remainder of the fruit coming from Howell Mountain. This floor fruit contributes to the wine's softer approach, even though the wines usually can be laid down for 15+ years. Read less

At eight years, the tannins in this wine still provide some structure, but without being overpowering. Blackberry, plum, and some mineral notes - possibly graphite. Color is a dark ruby. About a 10-15 second finish. If you like classic bordeaux style wines, this is elegant and restrained in the same way. I'd give it a 92 on the Parker type grading scale.

    Deep red-ruby. Complex nose melds cassis, violet, licorice, musky game, black tea and black olive. Denser than the Napa Valley offering but tighter today, with its sweetness currently under wraps. But this serious, backward wine turns sweeter on the ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

    An exotic melange of smoke, tar, camphor and licorice leads to expressive, fleshy fruit as the 2005 opens up in the glass. Hints of tobacco, leather, licorice and spices are layered into the finish. This is a gorgeous wine with lovely mid-palate presence
