Expert Reviews

91(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2009

(15.2% alcohol; a Bordeaux blend based on 80% cabernet sauvignon) Good full medium ruby. Superripe but not stewy on the nose, offering a complex range of black fruits, bitter chocolate, cedar, graphite, tar, dill and black pepper. Suave and sweet, with impressive mid-palate volume and an intriguing graphite minerality to complicate the crushed black raspberry flavor. Here the 8% malbec component takes the place of merlot to add aromatics, notes Sullivan. Finishes with huge tannins that appear to be supported by the wine's strong material. This will need time.

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
