The 1997 vintage in California and especially Napa Valley is widely considered to be one of the best vintages of the 90s. The long warm, sunny days and warm nights allowed the fruit to develop to a full, unhurried maturity. Rich vanillin oak, sweet currants and a touch of loamy spice combine nicely in both the deep, carefully focused aromas and well-filled flavors of this generous Cabernet.

Its flavors present a neatly layered mix of fruit, oak and spice that create a picture of polish and focus in the mouth. Deep flavored and supple, low in tannins and a long finish with an aftertaste of ripe varietal fruit that goes on and on. A Napa Valley Cabernet this good and at this kind of value is virtually unheard of these days.
