93 Points, James Suckling

Aromas of dark chocolate, mahogany, blackcurrants and black licorice. Polished and rich with a dense and deep core of black fruit.  Ripe, muscular tannins with a Chocolatey finish.  Classic Oakville, this Cabernet is powerful and earthy, backed by lush tannins, backed by Elderberry, Wild Blueberry, Black Raspberry, Cocoa Powder, Licorice Root, Leather and well-integrated tannins from the heart of the Napa Valley floor.

VINEYARDS
Fast gaining a reputation for producing some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. The rocky clay, loam and basalt soils have a heavy iron influence providing structure, power and depth with expressive fruit character and lush tannins.

WINEMAKING NOTES
Maintained moderate temperature during fermentation until dry, then basket pressed into 40% new oak for 18 months.

VINTAGE
Although yields were cut short in 2020, particularly for red wines, as the intensely dry, low-yielding growing season helped deliver some intensely concentrated grapes, many were able to produce some deeply impressive wines capable of long-term cellaring.  And precisely because there won't be a lot of 2020 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon around in years to come, collectors are already snapping up the few beautiful wines that were made.
