This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Robin Lail and her husband is still a baby in terms of development. Notes of sweet damp earth, forest floor, charcoal, graphite, black currants and white chocolate emerge from this full-bodied, complete, textured wine. It needs another 2-4 years of cellaring to resolve its tannin, but it is a long, pure, rich, riveting example of Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for another two decades or more. 94+ - Robert Parker

Dark intense and deeply concentrated framed by solid mouthcoating tannins the core blueberry plum and black cherry flavors are intense and focused shining through the oak and tannins on the finish where a nice touch of mocha adds dimension. Should reward short-term cellaring. Best from 2006 through 2012. 1050 cases made. –JL

Wine Enthusiast, October 2004
Made from Howell Mountain grapes, yet rich and approachable in youth. There are huge, chewy tannins, but they’re sweet, and frame black currant and cherry-chocolate fudge flavors.

There are huge, chewy tannins, but they’re sweet, and frame black currant and cherry-chocolate fudge flavors. This makes it sound like a dessert wine, but it’s dry and balanced and entirely satisfying.

Dense, lush and chewy, with sweet, nuanced flavors of currant, chocolate, cedar and herbs. Finishes with big, chewy but ripe tannins that will call for at least a few years of patience. An excellent vintage for this producer. 91+
