The 2007 is living up to all of its promise when tasted last year from barrel. There are 850 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from four separate sites in Napa (in Calistoga Howell Mountain Coombsville and Rutherford). A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of graphite licorice black cherry liqueur black currants crushed rocks spice box and cedar. With Pauillac-like aromatic and flavor profiles this opulent full-bodied rich 2007 reveals superb purity as well as definition. It may even grow in stature over the next five years and is capable of lasting 20-25+ years.

Pauillac-like nose combines black cherry licorice and flinty minerality. Broad and seamless on the palate with terrific intensity to the flavors of black fruits minerals and crushed stone. For all its considerable richness and depth this has plenty of tannic support. Builds slowly and inexorably on the back end with the element of flinty minerality returning. This should evolve slowly in bottle and last well. 94 points
