The Full Review

Rich, powerful, and extremely balanced, this wine defines the mountain Cab in Napa. The sun at this high elevation has given this wine its powerful, dark, blackberry fruit. The rugged soil and cool air has given it its bracing acidity, amplifying the inherent peppery aroma that mingles so well with the fruit. It’s only four years old, but the tannins are so well woven that it is part of the fabric of the wine. The skill in this wine represents the legacy of Cabernet Sauvignon here.
