92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

(66% cabernet sauvignon, 31% merlot and 3% cabernet franc):  Deep ruby-red.  Distinctly more mineral-driven than the Facets bottling, offering lovely lift and delicacy to the aromas of black cherry, blueberry, licorice and rock.  Juicy, shapely and suave, if in a rather masculine style.  A strong element of warm crushed stone energizes the mid-palate.  This intense, harmonious wine struck me as rather Pauillac in style.  Today I don't find the porty element shown by a barrel sample a year ago.  Structured to age slowly and gracefully.

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.
