This is consistently one of the most profound Napa Cabernets available as it delivers ‘Cult’ quality for less than half those lofty prices. Built like a skyscraper, this monumental creation offers supreme pleasure now (decanting advised) and will age gracefully for more than a decade. Sumptuous aromas of roasted espresso, and cocoa dominate the bouquet, with subtle notes of cinnamon and nutmeg in the background. These dazzle on the palate and crescendo into powerful, but focused, layers of dark cherry, blueberry and current, along with telltale cassis and gloriously creamy vanilla oak in a supporting role. The texture is ultra-luscious, reminiscent of this world-famous winemaker’s top efforts we’ve enjoyed in the past.
