This wine has all its ducks in a row and if you like big full-bodied red wines, this one will march right in and steal your heart away.  This winery flies under the radar and over the years has made quite a reputation for producing very specific style wines.  Vintage after vintage they keep putting consistently focused location specific wines in bottles for our enjoyment.   Classic Napa Valley Rutherford Cabernet aromas of dark brambly fruit mingled with allspice waft from the glass requesting a couple of minutes to fully develop. We recommend pouring at least half an hour prior to consuming or utilizing an aerator like a Soiree.  In the mouth, the generous warmth of flavor spreads across your palate like a soft warm blanket especially if that blanket tasted like dark cherries and had smooth tannins and a splash of vanilla that might come from a well-integrated oak regimen.  If you are setting a table to impress and have some big bold flavors that will pair with Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine will please even the most jaded of palates. 2,000 case production.
