Expert Reviews

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

(a blend of 83% cabernet sauvignon, 13% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot):  Good full red-ruby.  Fresher on the nose than the Napanook, showing raspberry, plum, mocha and tobacco aromas.  Round and plummy in the mouth, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of milk chocolate, mocha and licorice.  A wine of moderate ripeness for the vintage, and in a shell today.  Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and notes of plum, mocha and chocolate.  I don't find quite the structure or grip of the best years.

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.
