The sip is intense, with leathery but chiseled tannins presenting flavors of charred black currant, licorice, black olive, dried flower and white pepper. - MATT KETTMANN

Deeply colored, it has a smoking good bouquet of crème de cassis, smoke tobacco, lead pencil, camphor, and hints of chocolate. This gives way to a powerful, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon that has plenty of sweet tannins, a layered, multi-dimensional texture, no hard edges, and an awesome finish. I’d happily put this beauty in a lineup of top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and blends.

Medium to deep ruby, it has a nose of sage, bay leaf, cedar, mint chocolate, pencil shavings, blackberry and black cherry with nuances of leather, grilled meats and floral sparks. Medium to full-bodied, it's luscious and silky in the mouth with wonderfully ripe fruits, a framing of classy new oak and mineral nuances. It's supported by very ripe, grainy tannins—so plush—with a long, balanced finish. Pure class. It's perfectly approachable now but full of depth and potential to grow and improve if you can keep your hands off. I tasted this after about an hour's time in the decanter. About 850 cases will be released in March 2020. - EB

Time in the glass brings out a good bit of aromatic lift and freshness to play off the richness of the fruit. Next to the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Estate Selection is a bit brighter. I imagine the greater presence of blenders, especially Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, has a lot to do with that. -- Antonio Galloni
