Winery Notes: “This is a refined beauty of our Oakville cabernet, which is a very strict barrel selection derived by separating our two vineyard clones, and choosing the highest quality French oak barrels. Only four barrels made the cut.
Under the watchful eye of Thomas Rivers Brown, we have clearly achieved a more elegant wine that shines alongside our neighbors from Screaming Eagle, Bevan and Phelps Backus. It has a deep garnet-purple color with scents of blackberries, ripe plums and black current, with touches of cocoa, licorice and spice exploding from the glass.
This wine is full-bodied and wonderfully expressive at this youthful stage. It has a firm backbone, and abundant tannins with a balanced freshness that deliver an extremely long finish. Drink now with a decant or cellar until 2035.”
