    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is a Cabernet that is so enjoyable now and will just get better with time in the cellar. Aromas of rich, polished black fruit, mocha, and spice, followed by fulsome, juicy flavors of blackberry and black cherry, chocolate, plum and cedar, with ripe, smooth tannins and a pleasingly long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a rich, boisterous wine endowed with tremendous palate presence and depth. Juicy dark red berries, flowers and mint literally burst from the glass as the 2009 opens up with some time. Year after year, the One Point Five is one of the most consistent and fairly priced wines in the highflying landscape that is the Napa Valley. This is a flat out delicious bottle to drink now (with some decanting) and over the next handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    This is a soft, layered, elegant Cabernet even as it delivers a bath of chocolate-rich tannins and juicy dark fruit. Somehow it manages to pack in plenty of alcohol and discretion at the same time, the combination reading as exotic spice. A cushy pleasure to serve with short ribs.

    Rustic, with a chewy edge to the loamy earth and cedar. The core currant and dark berry flavors are intense and concentrated, and this ends with chunky tannins. Fans of that rustic character will happily chew through this. Best from 2013 through 2022.
