Intense yet avoids being heavy turning sleek and elegant. Deftly balanced and tightly focused with a complex lingering finish that ends with hints of herb and black olive. Drink now through 2015. 875 cases made. –JL

This boutique blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec is a broodingly backward, formidably endowed, full throttle, pedal-to-the-metal style of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2004’s 15.5% alcohol is well-concealed by the wine’s wealth of fruit and glycerin. This full-bodied beauty is black as a moonless night. It exhibits abundant notes of plums, blackberries and creme de cassis as well as nicely integrated wood, acidity and tannin. It will offer an impeccable well-made, stunningly rich, complex, two-fisted glass of Cabernet Sauvignon over the next 15+ years. 96+ - Robert Parker

Bright, saturated ruby. Brooding blackberry and blueberry aromas, with notes of mocha, cola and minerals complemented by a sexy meaty nuance; slightly high-toned in a positive way. Fat, sweet and seamless; very plush wine... Bright, saturated ruby. Brooding blackberry and blueberry aromas, with notes of mocha, cola and minerals complemented by a sexy meaty nuance; slightly high-toned in a positive way. Fat, sweet and seamless; very plush wine but not over the top. Rather oaky flavors of black raspberry, mocha, oak spices, toffee and minerals. Not hugely complex but wonderfully rich and layered wine, and evolving slowly. Hedonistic and utterly satisfying. Finishes with serious but well-buffered tannins.

This is a heavy wine which is clearly evidenced by the thick black core barely encircled by a dense ruby red rim. Sweet dark fruit aromas - plum and cassis - jump from the glass first followed by sweet cedar lilac and violet. The fruity floral components are surrounded by warm toasted vanilla and a hint of sweet tobacco. The wine is sweet and lush up front. The tannins are bold yet already very approachable. The strength of the wine builds on the mid-palate and the dense deep fruits fill the mouth. This is a gorgeously balanced wine that while bold remains velvety in the mouth. The chewy fruit and spice lingers on the finish for minutes.
