    Well-Balanced and Silky Cabernet Sauvignon

    Quite a restrained example of Napa Valley Cabernet with aromas of blackcurrant and plum. Well-balanced with a silky mouthfeel and flavours which evolve on the palate. Blackcurrant, liquorice and mocha dominate with a long finish. 

    • 16.5 Jancis Robinson, Sept 2018 “Most of this wine comes from Yountville, with contributions from Rutherford and Calistoga as well. The freshness of Yountville is there in the front of the wine, fragrant, herbal and refined. Then there’s full ripeness that brings depth to the flavours and juicy tannins to the finish. Distinctly meaty, with an iron-like warmth, this should gain complexity with several years of bottle age”.
    • Wine & Spirit: 91 points.

    Food Pairing: This wine pairs perfectly with barbequed ribs, rack of lamb or seared steak.
