    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the winery's most ambitious Cabernet. It’s a low production, 100% Cab, aged for more than two years in the barrel. Fantastically rich in blackberries, cherries, chocolate, anise, sandalwood and dusty spices, wrapped into smooth, fine tannins. The toasty oak stands out, and the fruit is primary. Best to give this dramatic young wine some time in the cellar. 2010–2014, although it could go for the long haul.

    The star of this portfolio is the limited production 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 1. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by a stunning bouquet of camphor, blue and blackberries, cedarwood, fruitcake, and a hint of new saddle leather. The wine boasts fabulous fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, layers of glycerin and richness, and a tremendously long finish. This superb wine can be drunk now, but it should evolve for 25-30+ years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Michael Martini selects the fruit for this wine from a collection of mountain sites around Napa Valley, including Constant, Stagecoach and Steinhauer vineyards. It has the tarry intensity of mountain-grown fruit, presented in a rich, luxurious style. Easy to enjoy now with an aged sirloin, this should develop more complexity with bottle age.
