Winemaker Notes

An ideal companion for grilled or barbecued red meat, all types of stew, and spicy dishes. A powerful wine, it also enhances the flavor of fish such as tuna, salmon or cod.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator

The 2006 Reserva is aged for 18 months in oak casks. It has an elevated licorice and mint bouquet with just a touch of volatility, although it is nothing to get worried about. The palate is well-balanced with leathery dark berry fruit, white pepper and a "correct" classic dry finish that is long and satisfying. This is honest and well-crafted. Drink now-2017.

Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
