Winemaker Notes

The 1994 vintage of this wine was ranked #9 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1998

The collaboration between winemaking and viticulture has been at the core of the Private Reserve program since the first vintage crafted by Ed Sbragia in 1977. Today, Winemaker Laurie Hook draws on her rich experience of working alongside... View More

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
The Wine Advocate

Production: 9,008 cases; Alcohol: 14.6%; Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; Harvest Dates: September 10 to October 24. The 2007 Private Reserve is composed of 34% Bancroft Ranch, 33% Steinhauer Ranch, 8% Chabot Vineyard, 8% Lampyridae, and the remainder from St. Helena Home Vineyard, Marston Ranch and Rancho del Oso fruit. A mild spring and summer with only a handful of heat spikes was followed by beautiful weather in September and October. One of the finest Private Reserves made over the last two decades, this phenomenal wine is obviously still an infant in terms of development, but it exhibits a dense purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of blackberries, white chocolate, licorice, tobacco leaf, smoky barbecue, charcoal and a burning ember-like note reminiscent of a Graves from Bordeaux. A dense, luscious, full-bodied, opulent style, with sweet tannin, this locked and loaded, intense, full throttle Private Reserve should be accessible in 5-6 years and last for 25-30.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Dark red-ruby. Very primary aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille and mint. Juicy but totally unevolved, offering vibrant flavors of cassis, kirsch, blackberry, mint and crushed stone. Not a particularly fleshy wine but boasts a sexy chocolatey sweetness. Finishes firm, youthful and very long, with harmonious tannins. Compared to this wine, the 2006 is more tannic and also sweeter but this will eventually be silkier. Made mostly from mountain fruit. Rating: 93+?

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

Laurie Hook blended this wine from a collection of seven vineyards, the majority coming from Howell Mountain's Bancroft Ranch and Steinhauer sites (70 percent). The power and dark extract of that mountain fruit are plumped up by juicier notes of plums and fat blackberries, all of it wrapped in the char of oak. A potent vintage of Private Reserve, this is built to age ten years or more.
