    Region: Napa Valley, California

    Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

    Item no. 29007

    Winemaker's Notes:

    On the nose, ripe berry (black cherry/blackberry) and cassis. Ripe fruit impressions of what is consider Classic Napa Cabernet... some fresh, youthful, lively qualities balances by barrel-aged suppleness - nearly evolved.

    In general, there is an overall presence of sweetness and harmony. Rich, weighty, full. Personally, I would most enjoy this wine from spring 2001 through 2004. For those who enjoy "aged" Cabernet, additional time should yield elegance and stature (and less ripe fruit) by the year 2006 - 2010.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Attractive creamy, toasty oak up-front, with supple currant and black cherry folding in beneath. Though it remains complex on the finish, it comes up shy in depth and added dimensions compared with previous vintages. Grapes are from the sources normally used for the Special Selection, which was not made in '96.
