Product Overview

Winemaker's Notes
"The nose offers an explosion of dark mountain fruit with decadent aromas of raspberry-filled chocolates, black currant, mulberry and huckleberry jam, as well as more savory notes of cedar and spice. On the palate, firm mountain tannins underscore this wine’s opulence and ageability, framing the blackberry, fig and black currant flavors, with bright underlying acidity providing poise and finesse to the long, layered finish."

Varietal Composition: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: Aged a total of 24 months, 18 months in new French oak followed by 6 months in neutral barrels

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"This is ripe and broad in feel, with a mix of mulled plum, açaí and blackberry fruit notes infused with alder and black tea and then laced up with a hint of licorice root. Shows a smoldering cast iron echo through the brooding finish. Best from 2023 through 2037. 2,022 cases made." -JM, 2022
