RATINGS

100Jeb Dunnuck

Totally thrilling notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, barbecue, white chocolate, and spring flower notes all flow to a full-bodied, powerful wine that has building tannins, no sensation of weight, hints of background oak, and incredible intensity and length.

98+ The Wine Advocate

...black cherries and blackcurrant cordial aromas that leap from the glass with nuances of roses, pencil lead, menthol and mocha. The palate is full-bodied, very fine and incredibly seductive with a solid frame supporting the generous layers, finishing long and exotic.

98James Suckling

Gorgeous pure fruit with a blackberry and blueberry character. Dried flowers and violets. Full-bodied, chewy and tannic but shows polish and finesse. A muscular yet beautifully fruity wine.

97Vinous / IWC

...possesses stunning richness and dimension. Black cherry, scorched earth, leather, licorice and tobacco build as this towering, statuesque Cabernet shows off its pedigree.

95Wine Spectator

Dense and slightly burly, this is a big 'un, with thickly layered fig, black currant and blackberry compote flavors framed by baker's chocolate and tobacco notes. Shows plenty of muscle, but there's a graphite edge buried deep, and this has drive...

17.5Jancis Robinson

Sweet and plush on the nose, with plenty of cassis and baked spices providing ample intensity. The palate is silky, smooth and fine but has good acidity given the vintage. There is a little anise and fresh leather, adding an exotic touch to the fruit.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,
