Gorgeous aromas of sweet tobacco, iodine and oysters. Blackcurrants, too. Subtle. Medium to full body, elegant and refined tannins, and yet there’s also delicious, understated complexity. Savory. A joy to drink now, but this will improve with age.

From the producer’s Yountville estate, this blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc is dusty with thyme, stone and black pepper flavors and leathery with tannin. Concentrated and structured, it further shines with black currant and tobacco notes that give it a distinct herbal undertone.
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
