Cellar for up to 10 years. Decanting time: Ideally, at least an hour.

Dark, deep and rich in colour. An elegant, full bouquet of black stone fruits, eucalyptus and spice-enriched minerality and as the nose continues to open, delicate hints of earthy wood and red fruits begin to emerge.

This full-bodied wine is firm, bold and ripe and demonstrates great intensity and depth which will be enhanced even further over time. Smooth, soft expressions of dark chocolate and cassis on the palate invite a relaxed, subtle enjoyment of the consistent, structured flavours, underscored with delightful expressions of plum, cherry and red berries. Hints of vanilla and toasted oak present themselves mid-palate for a delicately lush, harmonious delivery that begs revisiting over and over again. A warm yet subtle finish leaves pure enjoyment in the mouth, with lingering, uplifted expressions of fruitiness.

This wine will be remembered as a lively, if understated, portrait of the best that Napa delivers when it comes to Cabernet Sauvignon. An exceptionally strong year that can be difficult to source. The blending of this predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon varietal with the Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc offer an uplifting, harmonious effect and although there is a clear nod to the classic Napa Cabernet tradition, there is also a certain, gentler feminine effect than the typically big and bold Cabernets from Napa Valley.

This wine pairs exceptionally well with grilled, rich meats and hard cheeses. If possible, decant for as many hours as you have, although drinking it upon opening will not deliver a distinctly inferior experience. Enjoy now or hold for the next decade.
