96 Points - Chris Sawyer "Sommelier to the Stars"

Lofty aromas of ripe red fruits layered with notes of mocha, leather, mineral, and baking spice. The palate offers deep, lively and generous notes of ripe cherry, dark plum, raspberry and fresh currants are interlaced with hints of dried cranberry, milk chocolate, wild sage, and roasted walnuts.  Full-bodied and balanced with a silky texture, bright acidity, delicate tannins, and a long, smooth finish. The result is an extremely sophisticated, well-structured wine that drinks beautifully now, and will age for 10 to 15 years in the cellar.

To separate itself from the massive number of Cabernets aged in French oak barrels, this elegant and complex release is aged in fine American oak. As a result, this high-end, limited release offering joins an elite class of producers, including Silver Oak, Peter Michael and Ridge Vineyards, which work with specialty barrels that are hand-crafted with fine-grain wood from oak forests in Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and other selected states.

The fruit is from the famed Oakville & Atlas Peak appellations in Napa Valley and slowly aged for 24 months to allow plenty of time to soften the tannins and add layers of additional nuances to the finished blend.

Food Pairings:  Blue cheese, roasted eggplant, pan-seared duck with wild berry sauce, juicy ribeye steaks, rack of lamb, and flourless chocolate cake.

Varietals:  Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation:  Napa Valley
Alcohol: 14.5% by volume
Aging:  24 months on American oak
