Powerfully made, bold Napa Valley Cabernet. Led by formidable tannins, this Rutherford Cabernet is full of juicy flavors of black currant and blackberry with smashed peppercorn and hints of Cuban cigar. On the palate the wine is rich and finishes with a strong, yet smooth tannin structure that pleads for seared Wagyu beef or filet mignon.
This deeply colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend perfumes aromas of crushed black pepper, stewed black cherries and hints of vanilla from the 75% new French oak used for aging. On the palate the wine is approachable and juicy, yet masculine in structure. After a short decant the wine’s aromas become enticing and beg to be paired with roasted lamb or a hearty stew. The grapes are sourced from two of Napa Valley’s top grape growing appellations: Diamond Mountain and Spring Mountain. The use of mountain grown grapes gives this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot tremendous ability to age.
Burnt sienna color. Attractive aromas and flavors of chestnut honeycomb, walnut nougat, cherries in mocha mousse, and carob and strawberry jam with a silky, crisp, fruity medium body and a seamless, elegant, long finish that exhibits suggestions of honey roasted cherries, damson plum, spiced blood orange, and herbal tea with soft, chewy tannins and light oak flavor. A bright and appetizing Pinot Noir that will elevate a meal.
Tropical notes of fresh lime peel and pomelo meld well with the floral essence of lily, honey suckle, and lychee. The Pallet is flush with pear and toasted coconut. The mouth feel is lush and full while the acidity is balanced and lingering.
