A rich, full-bodied Cabernet, deep in color.  The nose of the wine is lively with essences of dark berries, plum, dark chocolate,  and toasty oak.  The sweet, supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle; followed by a pleasant, velvety, lingering finish.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKER'S NOTES: The 2011 vintage started out with a very mild spring which continued into summer. The summer months were unusally cool until a heat wave in the early fall kicked harvest off. The pace of harvest was very relaxed, lasting over eight weeks from the start of white varieties to the last Cabernet berry. Because the growing season was so long, the vines achieved full phenolic maturity, giving the tannins a level of textural elegance unsurpassed in normal vintages. For our efforts, we have been rewarded with a rich, full-bodied Cabernet, deep in color.  The nose of the wine is lively with essences of dark berries, plum, dark chocolate,  and toasty oak.  The sweet, supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle; followed by a pleasant, velvety, lingering finish.

Plush, delicious Cab with immediate physical appeal matched by cerebral attraction. Given a few minutes in the glass, this wine continues to engage as it unfolds, hinting at a long cellar life - if only it wasn't so darn appealing _now_.

Drink it now or keep it in the cellar, there is no wrong decision here. Very approachable Napa Cab that is welcoming from the first sip and grows into the bold Napa Cab we all love!
