Lots of black pepper and dark fruit on the nose, supplemented by wood aromas. The attack is very smooth, with moderate tannins that give a pronounced dry feeling without much bitterness. Alcohol and nuttiness on the finish.

Full-bodied with a matching aroma and palate composition with hints of red cherry, plum, and blackberry set in a background of dry leave like tannins. Wonderful finish that lingers.

Vintage rating : 94E Predicted year : 2014 MAX (Aged up to 5 years, but made to be drunk now). A full bodied wine that has an old world profile. Berries and vanilla show themselves on the nose while wood and leather smoothes things on the palate, finishing with lingering tannins. Nothing impressive... a decent goto wine.

Smooth mouth-feel. Not much character.

This was an excellent and most enjoyable Wine. The hint of pipe tobacco was a perfect Finish. This does not end Dry. My vavorite so far!

A good example of Napa Cabernet... Full bodied, rich, layered with a lingering finish... Dark berry flavors, tobacco, spice and oak.

Made to accentuate the high-toned, delightful fruits of Sonoma County's vineyards, this wine offers many layers, featuring aromas and flavors of red cherry, plum and blackberry fruit with an underlying dry creek dustiness. The round, full mouthfeel has just enough structure to lead it into a fruit focused finish.

Elegantly styled red with red plum and black raspberry. An accessible Cabernet with lush texture and soft tannins. Alluring casis and vanilla aromas carry through on the palate to a clean, smooth finish.

A nice Cabernet, on par with the wineryandrsquo;s equally fine 2008. Shows plenty of class, with rich blackberry, currant and cedar flavors. Earns points for sheer elegance. Ready to drink now.

A nice Cabernet that has some richness and complexity. It has easy flavors of berries, cherries, olives and herbs that are framed in thick, dusty tannins. Finishes very dry, with a sprinkling of oak. There's a tough quality that well-marbled beef will tame.


External Review

A sturdy, rich, extracted Cabernet at an appealing price. Dense, firmly tannic and concentrated, with ripe plum, black licorice, lead pencil and shavings, ending chewy. Drink now through 2020.


External Review

Concentrated flavors of black cherry marry perfectly with the oak nuances, imparting notes of clove, vanilla and caramel. This is a well structured and balanced wine that is medium to full bodied, with a sweet mid-palate and a long, fruit-forward finish.


External Review

This wine is cherry red, with a cool character to the fruit and light, graham cracker-scented oak to balance it. No steroids here - just simple, pretty cabernet, sensibly priced.

Sourced from vineyards up and down the Napa Valley. This wine exhibits a deep burgundy color with intense aromas of cassis, sweet herbs and hints of pipe tobacco. Intriguing flavors of ripe black cherries, deep, briary red fruits, and old world complexities linger throughout the finish. This is a well structured and balanced wine that is medium-to-full-bodied and is ready to enjoy now or can be aged up to 5 years. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by both Wine Enthusiast and Wine Advocate.
