Palate Profile

Fresh and vibrant with great mouthfeel and a long finish, this wine is very approachable in its youth. Drinking well now, it exhibits classic Napa Cabernet characteristics with surprising depth. This wine sets the standard for high quality Napa Cabernets and will age beautifully for the next 15 years.

Critic Awards

Thick, woody and savory in cedar, pencil shaving and sage, this wine is substantial in style and weight, with firm tannin and toasty oak. Rich layers of black fruit, tobacco and dark chocolate complement the earthy opening. This will do well with further aging; enjoy best from 2025–2030.

A pleasant red with currant and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium body, round tannins and a delicious finish. Not much structure, but friendly to drink. 85% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc and 5% merlot.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Merlot that spent 22 months in 50% new French oak. It offers a clean, classic, straightforward bouquet of cassis, toasted spice, and graphite as well as medium-bodied richness and depth, present yet ripe tannins, and a solid finish.
