    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet in color with rich upfront aromas of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry with hints of black pepper, earth and espresso followed by concentrate blackberry, red cherry, red currant, blueberry, black plum, black pepper and dark chocolate flavors. Well structured with integrated tannins and a silky smooth finish touched with luscious vanilla.

    The grapes for the Generations Cabernet Sauvignon come from our estate vineyards in Rutherford and St. Helena as well as select nearby growers in St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville. All vineyard locations are on the valley floor with gravelly alluvial fan soils, ideal for growing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon. By blending grapes from all three appellations, we are able to make a wine that represents the best of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2006 growing season was marked by mild spring and summer weather extending ripening periods by several weeks. The grapes for Generations were hand picked and sorted the first two weeks of October.

    Food Pairing: This wine pairs amazingly with a juicy filet mignon or rib eye with sautéed mushrooms, grey sea salt crusted prime rib, roast duck breast with figs, braised beef short ribs, rack of lamb, wild game or Coq Au Vin.

    Cellaring Potential: Generations Cabernet is delicious at release with the potential to age 15-20 years past the vintage date.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Healthy black-garnet hue. Sweet cherry scents with leather and rose petal accents. Rich, high tone fruit showcasing black cherry and plum. Well made with promising fruit, balancing tannins and fresh acidity in the finish.

    Well rounded, complex & full-bodied with fragrances of black cherry, sweet blackberries, herbs and roasted coffee bean; Fine grain tannins & layers of dried cranberries, blackberries, caramel, toffee & chocolate on the palate; Nice lingering finish....good to the last drop!! Drinking nicely now... hard to believe there's room for improvement!

    Delicious. Big, lots of dark fruit, spice, and long finish. Really opens up after an hour of decanting. Great value.
