96+ The Wine Advocate

...explodes from the glass with vibrant notes of crème de cassis, crushed black cherries, blackberry preserves and mulberries plus suggestions of clove oil, red roses, plum preserves and sandalwood with a compelling waft of licorice. The big, rich, full-bodied, full-on pedal-to-the-metal palate is absolutely chock-full of black fruit preserves layers and a whole firework display of exotic spices, framed by rock-solid, ripe, rounded tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with epic length.

94Vinous / IWC

...heady, exotic Cabernet laced with copious blackberry jam, bittersweet chocolate, spice and new French oak. Unabashedly opulent, this full-throttle Cabernet delivers plenty of intensity in a bold style... Soft contours add to its considerable appeal. This is certainly an impressive debut.

92James Suckling

Aromas of crushed blackberries, blackcurrant jam, toast and walnuts. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Lots of dark-fruit and toasted-nut flavors. Lovely fruit to this.

92Jeb Dunnuck

...big, jammy nose of black and blue fruits, flowers, violets, and spice. This soft, plush, medium to full-bodied effort is all about up-front fruit and charm...


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,


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
