The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa looks to be one of the finest wines made by the winemaking team of proprietor Justin Meyer and winemaker/viticulturist Daniel Baron. The 1997 Napa is an impressive effort. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot this wine has a flamboyant nose of fruitcake licorice Asian spice black currants and toasty wood. Deep opulent viscous intense chewy and thick it is a classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon made in an all-American oak lovers' style. It should drink well for 12-15 years.

Deep ruby-red with faint amber at the rim. Deeply pitched aromas of currant tobacco mocha bitter chocolate game oak char and cigar box; strong element of sweet roasted wood. Sweeter and richer than the Alexander Valley... Deep ruby-red with faint amber at the rim. Deeply pitched aromas of currant tobacco mocha bitter chocolate game oak char and cigar box; strong element of sweet roasted wood. Sweeter and richer than the Alexander Valley bottling; has more mid-palate stuffing to buffer its firm spine of acidity. Just a whiff of herbs in the mouth. Finishes quite long with broad tannins reaching the teeth. Complex and satisfying.
