    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby. Aromas of ripe black currant, dark cherry, and lilac interlace with black pepper, bay leaves, coffee, and toasted oak to create a rich, dense nose. Powerful, rich, and textured notes of dark cherry, ripe plum, caramel, and vanilla flavors weave an intense, voluminous mouthfeel accented by hints of anise and mocha. The back palate is rounded out by a lengthy yet smooth finish of vibrant sweet oak, tobacco leaves, and black olives.

    Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    Scents of black currant and rhubarb lend a bit of sweet relief to this lean, narrowly focused mountain wine. Overall, it's more savory than sweet, with firm black tannins that carry notes of peppercorns and beef stock.

    Loved this wine as did everyone I shared it with! Nice and bold but smooth, dry but not too dry with some fruit and a nice finish! Excellent.

    Horrible! Bitter, without any fruit forward taste but plenty of bad after-taste. Biggest let down of this holiday season. Know why it was marked down. Have 5 bottle remaining, would like to send back.

    Delicious and smooth with a lot of complexity. I had a couple cases without one bad bottle. Earlier commenter may have had a bad bottle. It happens. Great value at $30

    I just reordered this after tasting a bottle I had ordered before on a whim. It is SOLID with character. A great wine with meat

    I noticed another reviewer rated this very poorly--and of course each their own--this wine is quite good (and not flawed). This is a big, deep, rich wine--heavy on the olive, mocha, coffee and herb notes with a rich fruit--think more dark cherry, blue fruits instead of soft, red fruits. Cab can be a beast of a wine, and this is a great example of a Napa Valley classic, very site specific.

    Interesting cab. Was expecting it to be big and bold but was surprisingly smooth
