RATINGS

95Robert M. Parker Jr.

..black currant fruit, licorice, incense, & subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity & texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel. This is a sensational Opus One, with sweet tannin & impressive precision and depth.

94Wine Spectator

Tight and firm, with a chewy edge to the dried currant, graphite, blackberry and mineral notes. Full-bodied and intense, without being weighty, this is well-structured in a Bordeaux-like manner, ending with a complex, persistent finish.

93+ Stephen Tanzer

...there's a wildness here that I find compelling. Quite fresh and juicy in the mouth, but with a slightly exotic character to the dark berry, black cherry, smoky oak and bitter chocolate flavors...

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,
