The two vineyards that grow the fruit that goes into this wine are the things that Cabernet dreams are made of. Our Oakville source lies in the heart of the Oakville Bench on the western side of the AVA just a stone’s throw from the Napa River, delivering an opulence and concentration that serves as the bassline for this fabulous offering. With the additional fruit sourced from Rutherford and St. Helena appellations, the wine comes together as a beacon of Napa Valley’s finest, serving as a formidable reminder why this region is the world’s best for making Cabernet of the highest order.
Intense aromas of creme de cassis, black cherry, grilled plums and black truffle set the stage for an exquisite aromatic experience, only to be outdone by a rich and unctuous palate full of dark fruits, cassis, spiced cedar, and loam. Perfectly balanced backed by utterly refined tannins, the wine is aged for 18 months in 100% new French Oak, providing nuance and depth all wrapped in a sense of balance and harmony. As we revisit this wine time and time again, it continues to define itself as one of our best wines to date.
