A wonderful lushness defines the 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, which displays an impactful spectrum of blue and black fruit aromas typical of each unique sub-appellation. On the palate, warm blackberry, dark blueberry and plum are interwoven with cassis and toasted barrel spices. This Cabernet Sauvignon is satisfyingly evolved in its young years, but showcases a rich texture and velvety, long tannins telling of the wine's graceful aging potential.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest other Bordeaux varietals. Ripe, rich, lush and fully mature, it reveals lots of cedarwood, blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. Drink it over the next decade.

Wine SpectatorBig, rich, intense and tannic, with a dry, chalky, earthy edge to the dark berry and mocha scents. Ends with gritty tannins. Drink now through 2023. 1,622 cases made.
