The glass comes alive with aromas of crushed red and black summer berries, rose petal and herbs. In the mouth the generous, lush black and red fruits integrate enticingly with sage, tobacco leaf, smoke and black spice all wrapped within a structure of ripe Stags Leap District tannins. The finish is long and pleasurable.

Wine EnthusiastA substantial and imminently structured wine from a coolish vintage, this blends 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec to impressive effect. Leathery and intense it will benefit with time, its black pepper, red cassis fruit and flowery anise layers commingling in complex ways.

Wine SpectatorA tight version, with a tannic mix of dusty, cedary dried herb, berry and tobacco flavors. Fairly typical for the vintage in terms of austerity and stubbornness. Drink now through 2020. 9,000 cases made.
