|| Grapes:||100% Cabernet Sauvignon|
|| Type:||Dry Red|
|| Region:||Napa Valley|
| 86 pts, Wine Enthusiast: "A bit overripe, with a raisiny taste behind the black currants, and also quite dry and tannic, with a hard, mouth-locking, dusty astringency. The combination definitely strikes you as unbalanced, and not likely to age out."
Winemaker's Comments: Color is dense and ruby. Aromas of jammy blackcurrants, ripe plums, vanilla and black cherry. The mouth exhibits very ripe, silky tannins. Finish is thick, yet very well-balanced, with layers of dense, dark fruits and espresso, coupled with just a kiss of oak in the background. Anticipated maturity: 2015.
