Vintages Wine Panel: This is textbook Napa Cab. Big and robust, with aromas of cassis, black cherry, raspberry pie, graphite, tar, and tobacco. Dry, full bodied and delectably ripe and concentrated, with soft yet sturdy tannins providing structure. Fresh acidity lifts the fruit into the spectrum of red cherry and currants, leading to a long, pure fruit finish with just a touch of smoke. Savour over the next 5+ years with a porterhouse steak. My note: Gorgeous concentration and depth in this black-fruited wonder. Aromas of dark plums and blackberries wrapped in smoke and dark spices. A great persistence of flavour on the palate leads to a long and satisfying finish.

Reviews and Ratings

“The 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is evocative of the rich terroir of Napa Valley, yet a wine that I find to be immediately approachable and appealing. I pick up aromas of cassis and cherry accented by licorice and roasted coffee. The wine has a plush mouthfeel complemented by flavor notes of black fruit and brown spice, and there is bright blackberry finish.”
- Laurie Hook, Winemaker

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
