RATINGS

100Jeb Dunnuck

...heavenly notes of blueberries, cassis, camphor, graphite, and forest floor, with more floral nuances... With full body, a powerful, stacked, intense profile, shocking elegance and purity, and a massive finish...

99-100Robert M. Parker Jr.

...inky blue/black/purple, with incredible amounts of flamboyant, majestic blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with raspberries, spring flowers, wet rocks, truffles and foresty notes. Incredibly intense on the palate, the blueberry and graphite character seems to come forward along with a suggestion of toast...amazingly viscous, thick and juicy wine... This is an exhilarating elixir...

99Vinous / IWC

... A wine of exceptional finesse and energy... Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, sage, graphite and spice are some of the many notes that build as this vibrant, breathtakingly beautiful wine shows off its pedigree. Wow!

97Wine Spectator

A stunner, dripping with flavors of creamed plum and blackberry preserves, while a range of baker's chocolate, violet, alder, sweet tobacco and warm earth notes curl around the fruit. A tight-grained structure pulls everything together on the finish, where the fruit takes an encore.

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,
