The 2009 doesn't have the bombastic fruit of the 2010 instead it stands out for the silkiness of its tannin and pure length. The 2009 Signature is classy and refined from the very first taste. All the elements are beautifully in place in this mid-weight Cabernet. The 2009 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Malbec 9% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. -Antonio Galloni

This has primary blackberry and cherry-jam flavors with an additional note of toasty oak. The tannins and acids are excellent lending structure to the richness. The result is a wonderfully-complex Napa Cabernet that should develop over the next six years. - S.H.

Complex varietally expressive aromas of cassis black cherry minerals tobacco and chocolate plus a light leafy element. Suave but tightly wound with lovely energy and mountain power to its medicinal black fruit and menthol flavors. In a fairly dry style showing little easy sweetness and finishing with substantial mouthcoating tannins. This will need a good six to eight years to expand in bottle.

Dense and a touch rustic with chewy tannins crushed rock dried berry sage and savory flavors. Maintains its firm tight focus and appears built for the long haul. Best from 2013 through 2027.-JL
