    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1997 harvest produced red wines of dark garnet color and high quality, with a redolence-suggesting classic Napa Cabernet. For the final month of harvest, daily data, collected in Rutherford, California, reflects extraordinary weather conditions during final stages of grape maturation. These near-perfect conditions allowed all blocks of this late-ripening varietal to mature fully. To me, this wine is highly reminiscent of the 1987 - a wine of opulence that was consumed early on and still holds its vibrancy today. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc comprise the blend of this vintage.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The bouquet is dark and serious, with brooding black-cherry, leather and cedar aromas. In the mouth, flavors of black plums, mint-menthol and tobacco—all with a foresty accent—fill the palate. On the heavy side of medium-weight, with a supple texture, it has a long, toasty finish with fine tannins.
