97-Points & Platinum Medal, Beverage Testing Institute – “Opaque violet color. Inviting, toasty aromas and flavors of roasted nuts, dark chocolate mint, and cassis pastry with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-full body and a smooth, complex, long berry-cherry custard tart, melted toffee, and delicate baking spices finish with silky, soft tannins and moderate oak. A plush, juicy Napa Cabernet with bright fruit and seamless balance.”

Winemaker Kirk Venge’s Notes – “This is a blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon along with Merlot and Petit Verdot added in. The Stice Lane Vineyard fruit contributes jammy, black cherry and currant flavors, while the Rowe Vineyard fruit provides black currant and cedar notes on the mid-palate. The 2014 vintage endured the continuing drought as well as the South Napa earthquake. Still, the ideal weather – dry and temperate with few heat spikes – made for hastened yet predictable growing events. The wine was aged 21 months in 60% new French oak.”
