88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005

(est. $50; 52% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot and 24% cabernet franc) Good medium red. Aromatic nose combines cherry, cedar, loam and tobacco, along with a balsamic note. Soft and lush in the mid-palate, with subtle flavors of redcurrant, red plum, loam and tobacco. With moderate stuffing, the finish shows a slight green edge. But I liked this wine's rather Old World restraint.

An Excellent Blend

Dark and very rich, almost reminiscent of a good Syrah. A real knockout of a wine, and worth the price. Paired very well with a good filet mignon. I like Miner wines a lot, and this is well worth it.

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.
