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

($150; 15.3% alcohol; 98% cabernet sauvignon with 2% petit verdot) Saturated deep ruby. Crushed rock, blackberry, blueberry, violet, menthol and espresso on the brooding nose. In a cooler, rather medicinal style, but with a smooth texture to the flavors of black cherry, minerals, hot rocks, bitter chocolate, shoe polish, menthol and fresh herbs. This distinctly masculine, backward wine possesses a big structure, finishing with notes of gravel and toast and serious, slightly drying tannins that will require time to soften. This Yountville vineyard was harvested between October 23 and 27 in 2006; in 2007 the harvest stretched from September 6 through October 10! I will hold off on publishing a note on the 2007 until next year, as my barrel sample was painfully tannic and tough and may not have been representative.)

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.
