This Select Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, ruby red wine of extraordinary complexity. The unique characteristics of this wine can be attributed to the rich volcanic soil indigenous to this part of the Napa Valley and a distinctive microclimate located at an altitude of 1500 feet.
The wine is richly textured and intense, with ripe flavors of blackberry and plum, subtle notes of oriental spices and coffee, with moderate tannins and a long, expansive finish. The elegance of the Cabernet Sauvignon, with its profound dark fruit intensity, is blended with the bursting cherry flavor of Merlot and Cabernet Franc to produce wine in complete harmony.
The wine was aged for nearly two years in French oak barrels, the result is a wine with an intense yet delicate nose, a rich and satisfying mouth feel, a pleasant finish with just the right amount of tannin, and the promise of a long aging.
