Winemaker Notes

The 2016 reminds Cathy of the 2014 with the volume turned up a bit. Redolentwith bright red currant, blueberry, tart cherry and darker plums, cassis andblackberry fruit, it is wildly complex. The fruit aromatics are complexed by baking spices and floral notes including dried rose petals and violets. Varietal dried herbs add yet another dimension. An alluring yin of minerality and snappy natural acidity play off against the yang of a broad, luscious mouth feel.

In spite of a lightness to the palate weight, this is no doubt a serious wine. It's complex and integrated, with intriguing aspects of leather, earth and truffle. Soft and supple, it shows flavors of clove, tart red raspberry and cassis, and is deliciously memorable in every way. Enjoy 2026–2036.

93 points James Suckling

This has a great cassis and sour-cherry nose with hints of lilacs, wet stones and licorice. Quite powerful, but restrained and elegant, this medium-bodied Napa cab has impeccable balance with a very long, clean and dry finish that pulls you back to the glass for more. A great food-wine with just 13.1 per cent alcohol!


93 points Wine Spectator

Fresh in feel, with red currant, raspberry and damson plum fruit, laced with floral hints and backed by a subtle mineral edge on the finish. Offers a pure, streamlined character. Well done. Drink now through 2033.


91 points Jeb Dunnuck

The value-priced effort is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, all from St. Helena and brought up in barrel. This classic effort has lots of cassis, leafy herbs, some damp earth, and sappy spring flower aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and downright elegant, it's not a powerhouse, yet has terrific purity, balance, and length. I'd happily drink bottles over the coming decade or more.
