($50) Bright red-ruby. Aromas of red berries and sassafras are overshadowed by notes of tar and charred oak. Offers good texture, with flavors of dark berries, sassafras, leather and tobacco, along with a tarry, chewy wood element. Finishes with somewhat gritty, drying, oak-powered tannins and plenty of spice from the wood.

this is a great winery that hardly anyone here on the east coast knows about. This is a serious wine for the cali cab lover, intriguing, and deep, a beautiful wine

If you like meritages, this one is in the class of Opus One, Merryvale Profile and Justin Isoceles - all excellent.

A lovely Meritage effort from this small estate with vineyards next to Dalle Valle, Colgin, David Arthur, and Pahlmeyer---but at a fraction of the price! A slick texture of red and black plums, licorice in the center, big soft tannins indicate longevity, and spicy nuances in the finish of black cassis Cabernet fruit and pepper. Tasted in Napa Valley, 2/22/04; Tasted in Madison, 11/30/04 A-

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
