93 Points, James Suckling
From the heart of the valley foor, each vineyard experiences nearly perfect weather with lingering morning fog and warm daytime highs.
Maintained moderate temperature during fermentation until dry, then basket pressed into 40% new oak for 18 months.
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.
