This single-vineyard wine immediately impresses with dark purple hues. Scents of dusty-earthy richness are immediately noticed which might be expected as typical from this part of Oak Knoll. Hints of raspberries, lavender and dried Herbs de Provence add to the complexity. On the palate there is excellent structure and weight as expected in a top Napa Cabernet. A well-structured, ample-bodied wine, it has sufficient tannins for aging but is also enjoyable now. Has excellent balance with added notes of vanilla and chocolate with a lingering, pleasant finish.
