Classic Napa Valley Cabernet with black fruit notes and a hint of earth and spice. The wine is dense and offers a lot of fruit and also finishes with great structure and backbone.

Wine Advocate

The estate's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is built on a serious core of freshness or minerality. Freshly cut flowers, bright red berries and sweet spices burst from the glass. The 2011 is tense, wiry and full of energy. It will be interesting to see where this goes over the next year. There is plenty of promise, although the 2011 is naturally a smaller-scaled wine, in keeping with the personality of the year. This barrel sample is just the Cabernet component, so the final blend is likely to be quite different. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Score: 89-92. —Antonio Galloni, December 2012.
