"For the Napa Valley Cabernet, we sourced 50% of our grapes from Rutherford, 30% from Oakville, 15% from Atlas Peak and 5 % from Napa. Grapes come from vineyards managed by some of the most renowned growers in the Napa Valley: Gary Morisoli, Bill Collins, Beckstoffer, Traina and Garvey. Deep garnet in color with aromas of ripe cherry and blackberry with a bit of mocha and cocoa. The fruit intertwines lovingly with the oak, hints of which can be found in aromas of clove, black pepper and spice. The palate is rich and bold but the tannins are soft and supple creating an endless finish. The acid compliments the lushness of the fruit and gives structure and balance throughout the wine. "

87 points "Aromas of ripe cherry, plum, lead pencil and loamy earth are elegant and refined in this full-bodied red, with firm, integrated tannins. Ends on a simpler, cedary note. Drink now through 2015. 3,412 cases made. " Best 2009-2015
