Our 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon derives depth and breadth of character from the diverse terroir represented by State Lane, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Flat Rock and Stagecoach vineyards. Black garnet in hue, concentrated aromas of black currant, blackberry and lavender delight. Freshly cut flowers, cedar, caramel and violets entice the palate. The fruit is pure and elegant, displaying faceted layers of dark cherry, cassis and plum. Velvety tannins wave together with layers of milk cocoa, anise and graphite to create a charming and lengthy finish.

This is a fine Cabernet, dry and complex, with beautiful Napa tannins. It has layers of blackberries, currants and mocha, and the oak is apparent. There are some overripe raisins in there, but nothing the wine can't handle. With a ripe, spicy finish, it drinks well now, but will be better after 2018.

Dense, yet supple and graceful, with tiers of black fruit, blackberry, wild berry, subtle spice, cedar and black licorice flavors. Ends with firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022. 2,954 cases made.
