Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"This wine is showing lots of youth and vibrancy right now. The nose opens with notes of cherry, cacao, cranberries, pomegranate and subtle hints of Lilac. The attack is soft with explosives flavors of ripe wild berries. The mid pallet is voluptuous and juicy, showing smooth, well integrated tannins and a lengthy finish."
93 Points & "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a tight, dry, tannic wine showing all the hallmarks of ageabiliy. Winemaker Philippe Melka has done a good job of blending fruit from Yountville, Atlas Peak and St. Helena to produce a seamlessly integrated Cabernet. The mouthfeel is soft, yet with fierce tannins that frame superb blackberry, cocoa, herb, mineral and cedar flavors. This continues a string of successful Cabernets that have been modestly priced, by Napa standards."
