Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - This stately wine has a delightful nose of blackberry, cassis, wood varnish, and sage. The palate is rich, but structured and begins to show savory flavors of roasted pepper and sweet fennel in tandem with the wine’s ripe, dark-toned fruit. - 2017 Ultimate Wine Challenge.June/2017
James Suckling 90 points - A more red-fruited style of cabernet sauvignon with redcurrants and red plums as well as some pretty ivy character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now..December/2017
We always strive to make balanced, sophisticated, yet approachable Bordeaux style blends with both our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot offerings. By blending a trilogy of grapes from where they grow best, referred to as ”Trois Cepages,” acknowledges my dedication to winemaking. These wines reflect the unique terroir of the Napa Valley and are traditionally blended together with Cabernet Franc and, at times, Petit Verdot.
